Different Types of Fleas Found in San Antonio, TX
Just like anywhere else in the United States, fleas are found in San Antonio, Texas. More a problem for our animals, fleas can still be a threat to people. There are several species found in the area, most commonly the dog flea, cat flea and the human flea but the rat flea that carries the plague is also found here. In addition to plague, fleas can also transmit several other serious health conditions including fleabite dermatitis, murine typhus and tapeworms. Most tapeworm infestations result when a pet or even a person ingests a flea that is carrying a tapeworm. In the case of humans, this usually occurs while the person is playing with a pet that has fleas. Other negative effects from flea bites include nasty rashes that can become infected.
Signs of Fleas on Humans, Dogs & Cats
One of the most obvious signs of fleas besides spotting fleas themselves is the itchy inflammation bite mark left behind, after a flea has consumed your blood and then detached. But fleas can cause more of a threat than a little irritation; they can transfer some serious ailments, more so to the pets. With fleas being incredibly tiny, it can be difficult to know if our pets are being victimized by these tiny blood sucking pests. Signs can include abnormal scratching, licking or biting as well as red patches, hair loss and flea dirt (specks of black, red or brown dirt that is actually flea feces composed of digested blood).
