A Complex Pest Problem
Although fleas commonly live on household pets, you could have fleas even if you don’t have dogs or cats. If the person living in the house before you had fleas, you could discover that you have a problem soon after moving in.

You can spot a flea problem early by checking for:
- Pets scratching and appearing to be in discomfort
- Fleas crawling on your pet
- Droppings on your pet’s skin that look like pepper
- Flea droppings on carpet or pet bedding
