About Fleas
These tiny terrors aggravate people and their pets with their itchy, painful bites.  Fleas account for more than half of the dermatological conditions requiring veterinary assistance and even a single flea bite can be intensely irritating.  Bites tend to be concentrated on the lower legs but can also occur elsewhere.  Some bite victims also suffer from allergic dermatitis characterized by intense itching, hair loss, reddening of the skin and secondary infection.

Flea



1/16 to 1/18 inches in length

Adult fleas are small, dark-colored, wingless insects that are flattened from side to side.  The most commonly encountered flea is the cat flea or Ctenocephalides felix.  It has an incredibly tough body and it is difficult to kill a flea just by squeezing between the fingers. 

What does it eat?

 

Adult fleas feed exclusively on the blood of animals and people. 

Where does it hide?

 

Flea larvae like to hide in dark areas close to the ground, like carpets.  Eggs are commonly found on or near pet’s resting areas.  Adult fleas prefer to live on the host animal.

What can it do to me?

 

In addition to their annoying, itchy bites, fleas also spread diseases by serving as a vector for disease producing organisms.  Fleas transmit diseases to both people and pets such as dermatitis, murine typhus, plague and tapeworm.

About Yellow Jackets
In some species, a chemical alarm is released upon stinging that causes the other yellow jackets to join the attack.  Unlike bees, yellow jackets do not lose their sting after an attack and can therefore sting repeatedly.  Multiple stings can be inflicted by a swarm of yellow jackets in a very short time.

Rodent Extermination Treatments

As autumn approaches, many homeowners find rodents seeking shelter indoors for the winter.  These inventive invaders can squeeze through an opening the size of a dime to find food and shelter.  Unfortunately, rodents such as rats and mice bring some baggage.  According to the CDC, they are responsible for the spread of over 35 diseases worldwide.  After invading the home, rodents can contaminate food sources, transport fleas and spread diseases such as plague, murine typhus and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Don’t worry, Complete Pest Solutions has the extermination treatments to help you get rid of rodents.
