Fleas are blood-sucking parasites that usually target pets such as dogs and cats, where they can remain hidden under the fur and cause pets extreme itching and discomfort. Fleas can live anywhere from 13 days to 12 months and produce millions of offspring during that time. Fleas also thrive in the warm climate of Bakersfield and Kern county.
How to Control and Exterminate Fleas in Bakersfield
DIY or home remedies for flea infestations are often challenging and ineffective because fleas reproduce very quickly and most flea control products are not effective on flea eggs, only on adult fleas. So if not treated properly, the flea problem continues to propagate at an alarming rate, or is treated just to reoccur when eggs hatch again.

How to Identify Flea Infestations
Signs of fleas on your pets could be spotting the flea’s tiny dark droppings or white eggs on your pet’s fur; lots of scratching, licking and biting from your pet; scabs or even hair loss on your pet; and anemia symptoms since fleas can consume 15 times their own weight in blood from a pet. You may even spot the fleas moving on your pets as fleas have the capability of jumping up to two feet – which means they can easily travel between animals, from animals to furniture and objects in your home, and even onto people whom they also bite (which makes flea infestations even more complicated and serious).
