Fleas are gross!
And sometimes bad for human health.
Did you know the CDC reports there are an average of 7 cases of human plague diagnosed in the United States per year? Obviously that’s a tiny number of individuals affected and nothing like Medieval times, but it is still around! Fleas and rodents (primarily in the southwestern U.S.) can transmit this disease. Just one more reason to keep fleas and rodents away from your residence.
See Center for Disease Control for further info. As always, we can discuss and recommend flea management options for your pets.
