Fleas – Get Rid Of These Biting Parasites

Fleas are small, biting, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals like humans, cats, and dogs.

Controlling a flea infestation requires a long-term approach. You must combine good housekeeping, residual insecticides and veterinary intervention to be successful.

Upright vacuums produce vibration at the suction head that stimulates fleas to hatch directly from pupae into your device.
