Professional Flea Pest Control New York City NY
The flea is a parasitic insect that feeds on blood from various living hosts. These insects have been shown to plague specific animal species – canines, felines (cats), deer, raccoon, opossum, and ferrets. The flea gets from point A to point B by hitchhiking rides with unsuspecting animals and humans. They utilize their long, powerful legs to hop onto backpacks, shoes, animal backs, attire, and handbags. Once the flea secures its new position, its claws grasp hold of the surface and settle in for the ride.
What Is The Most Common Flea Sighting In New York City?
More cat flea “Ctenocephalides felis” sightings are reported in New York City than any other species. The adult grows up to one-eighth an inch in length, with a flat body that provides superior flexibility and agility. Fleas can easily maneuver through dense animal fur to escape detection and capture.
While you may be under the impression, your animals are 100 percent safe because they are not felines. Well, do not get too overjoyed because all the aforementioned animal species are cat flea targets. Whether your fur baby is a cat, ferret, rabbit, or canine, cat flea infestations are a possibility.

Venomous insect bites pose more health risks than the bites of non-venomous insects. The severity of the allergic reaction will depend on how the victim’s body reactions. Some people with strong immune systems generally handle insect bites better while some victims end up hospitalized due to severe allergic reactions. Whatever the case may be, it is crucial to know the characteristics of a flea bite just in case you become the next victim.
