Television commercials frequently tout the importance of protecting household pets from fleas. However, protecting the health of those family members who care for household pets is of equal importance. Fleas, which commonly appear in warmer months, feed on the blood of any warm-blooded body, thus posing a potential risk to the health and well-being of families within their own homes.
"Although, fleas are often associated with household pets, these pests can certainly affect human beings," says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for NPMA. "Frequently, flea bites are itchy, unsightly and may cause allergic reactions in humans. With the recent increase in flea calls to pest control companies, it is important to protect your family from these potential health risks."
NPMA experts offer these tips for help avoid flea infestations:
"If you suspect a flea infestation in your home, be proactive in treating the problem and contact a licensed pest professional to rid your home of fleas and to prevent future infestations," advises Henriksen.
