Flea Plagues

Siphonapters or better known as fleas are group of very small insects, wingless, dark in color and that can make big leaps to reach their victims. They are ectoposites of mammals and birds with a highly modified morphology adapted to the habitat they occupy. They are flattened laterally in order to move better between the hairs of the hosts. Their main problem lies in their diet which is blood (hematophages), for this they have a mouthpiece of sucking piercing type. Itching both adults are both female and male.

There are different species of Flea Plagues, although we highlight the family Pulicidae:
• DOG PULGA: Ctenocephalides canis.
• CAT PULGA: Ctenocephalides felis. More common.
• MAN PULGA: Pulex irritans.
• RAT PULGA: Xenopsylla cheopis.
• AVES PULGA: Ceratophyllus gallinae.

Flea Plagues create serious problems in homes and livestock, especially those who have pets or are ranchers. Since they are usually transported by pets, but also https://gimasur.com/pest-control/rats/ rats, so even petless households can be affected. Normally our pets have pipettes against parasites, the problem is that fleas are temporarily transported by dogs and cats, and when detecting the insecticide they break off and look for another host like us.

Its larvae live in damp, dark places, such as animal beds and hot flashes. They feed on organic waste mainly excrement or manure so they are associated with the presence of animals such as cats and dogs vagrants or sheep or goat farms, as well as fertilizer of gardens in cities creating problems in grass and gardens. Sometimes if there are no animals that serve as food they can “hibernate”, entering diapausa. It can remain so for up to a year, until they are stimulated by vibrations, which explains possible mass attacks that occur in abandoned buildings.

The biggest concern caused by the presence of flea pests are the bites of adults,since they can become very annoying and irritating causing a lot of stress in humans, dogs, cats, sheep, goats or pigs. In some people its saliva causes very serious reactions since it is very allergenic. Most importantly, they transmit diseases and parasites between animals and animals to man, such as black plague or bubonic plague that caused an epidemic in Europe in the Middle Ages.

If you are concerned about flea pests you may look for the following clues:
• Presence of adults in the fur of your pet or livestock animal. Look for brown insects with a size of 1-8 mm. They are usually hidden in the hind legs, on the head or neck of pets.
• Check for small black feces on your pet’s skin or bed or carpets.
• Stings are identified as small dark red dots, in series of 2 to 5 welts.
