What Are the Signs of Fleas?
The key to flea control is preventing or stopping an infestation early on. In order to never have to deal with a flea problem, it’s important to know the signs of a flea infestation:
- Adult fleas. You may be able to spot adult fleas. On your pet, they look like dot-like bugs hidden in the hind legs, head, or neck.
- Odd pet behavior. Excessive scratching, reddened skin, hair loss, pale gums, and bumps are all signs of fleas on dogs or cats.
- Flea dirt. Flea feces (called flea dirt) looks similar to coarse black pepper
- Flea larvae or eggs. Larvae look like minuscule white worms that are about 2-5 mm long with pale hairs covering their bodies.

Best Flea Control Methods
To keep your home, family, and pets safe from fleas, it’s important to know how to prevent fleas in the first place! This starts with knowing how to look for fleas. Some other important tips to keep fleas away include:
- Take your pets to your veterinarian. Flea control products can safeguard your cats and dogs from fleas, which will effectively keep them out of your home!
- Keep nuisance wildlife out of your yard. Raccoons, opossums, deer, cattle, coyotes, foxes, bobcats, and skunks can all carry fleas and deposit flea eggs and larvae into your yard.
- Wash bedding frequently. If you suspect a flea may have gotten inside your property, run your pet’s bedding, laundry, sheets, and more through a hot wash.
- Vacuum thoroughly. Vacuum all areas of the home including upholstery. Carefully dispose of vacuum bags.
