Serving South Placer County, Sacramento County and the Surrounding Areas

Fleas are reddish-brown, parasitic insects that live by consuming blood from their hosts. They can attach to wild animals, such as deer, foxes, raccoons, possums, ferrets, rats, and house pets. In some cases, they can also attach to humans when they have nowhere else to go.  

Since they are tiny creatures, growing up to only 3 millimeters in length, they are challenging to detect. They can hide in inconspicuous areas. They have flattened bodies that allow them to traverse through the thick fur. And while they lack wings, their long legs give them a great ability to jump, reaching up to about 7 inches vertically and 12 inches horizontally. These abilities enable them to travel from one host to another easily. 

Flea bites are very itchy. They appear in clusters and look like small red bumps. The skin around the bites may feel painful and irritated. Some people also experience rashes around the bitten areas. 

How to Treat Flea Bites? 

If you’ve been bitten by fleas, avoid scratching. We recommend washing the area with soap and water to keep the infection from spreading. The bites will eventually go away without treatment, but to help relieve the symptoms, you may do any of the following:  

  • Apply anti-itch cream or lotion
  • Take oral antihistamine
  • Put ice over the bitten areas
  • Apply aloe vera/vinegar/tea tree oil/rubbing alcohol

These methods will help you soothe the itchiness and swelling of the bitten areas. If you experience some kind of allergic reaction to the bites, develop rashes, or any type of infection, see your physician right away. 

For infested pets, the best way to treat them is to take them to the veterinarian. They will be able to tell you if your pet has health problems caused by the fleas. The vet can also recommend cheap and effective ways to treat fleas.  

How to Get Rid of Fleas?

Getting rid of fleas is not an easy task. The best way is to hire a flea exterminator to ensure results. While you’re waiting for Rocklin Pest Control to show up, you can do the following:
