Flea-Borne Typhus Warning in Santa Ana

Flea-Borne Typhus Warning in Santa Ana

5/26/12

A warning to residents in Santa Ana after a man contracted typhus from a flea earlier this week.

The man lived in the area of Broadway and Washington.

Orange County Vector Control has gone out into the community to hand out literature advising people of how they can protect themselves and their pets.

Flea-born typhus, also known as endemic typhus and murine typhus, is caused by bacteria found in infected fleas and their feces.

Symptoms begin one to two weeks after exposure and include high fever, headaches, chills, body aches and pains, and a rash on arms, chest, back, or legs.

Here are steps you can take to protect yourself:

•Pets, yards, and homes should be kept free of fleas by treating pets with flea-prevention medication.

•Eliminate places where wild animals, such as opossums, cats, rats and raccoons, can find shelter.

•Eliminate food sources that might attract wild animals.

•Wear protective gear when cleaning areas that may be infested by the above-mentioned animals
