Bed bug / Flea bites infestation and Extermination
There is no way of tell in you have been bitten by a bed bug or a flea. Flea Habitats include woods, beach grass, lawns, forests, and even urban areas. Ticks are not insects like fleas, but arachnids like mites, spiders and scorpions. They have a four-stage life cycle,larvae, nymphs, and adults. Adult females of some species lay about 100 eggs at a time. Others lay 3,000 to 6,000 eggs per batch. Six-legged larvae hatch from the eggs. After at least one blood meal, the larvae molt into eight-legged nymphs–in some species, more than once.
Final nymphs molt into adult males or females, also with eight legs. Depending on its species, a tick may take less than a year or up to several years to go through its four-stage life cycle. While ticks need a blood meal at each stage after hatching, some species can survive years without feeding.
Ticks may carry various infectious organisms that can transmit diseases to cats and dogs, including the following (listed with possible symptoms): babesiosis–lethargy, appetite loss, weakness, pale gums ehrlichiosis–high fever, muscle aches Lyme disease–lameness, swollen joints, fever, poor appetite, fatigue, and vomiting (some infected animals show no symptoms) tick paralysis in dogs–gradual paralysis, seen first as an unsteady gait from uncoordinated back legs (some infected dogs don’t develop paralysis).
Common household fleas don’t usually transmit diseases to pets and people.The tiny insects are mainly “just a nuisance,They generally cause a lot of itching and scratching. They may also cause some discomfort due to possible allergic flea bite dermatitis.” Ticks, those other dreaded bloodsuckers, pose greater risk, annually giving pets and thousands of people illnesses such as Lyme disease.While there are more than 200 species of fleas in this country, the main troublemaker for pets is the cat flea. Happy to feed on anyone in the household–cat, dog or human–these wingless insects will most likely choose a pet, whose fur provides warm camouflage for their breeding ground.
Flea bite problems and their symptoms include:
Anemia in young, older or ill pets–pale gums, weakness, lethargy transmission of tapeworm to pets–irritability, erratic appetite, shaggy coat, mild diarrhea, weight loss, seizures transmission by rodent fleas of plague to cats–fever, swollen lymph nodes, mouth sores, swollen tongue, cough, pneumonia. some pets are extremely allergic to flea bites. In these pets, fleas may cause a rash, inflammation, and hair loss. In response, cats may compulsively over groom.
