Getting rid of a flea infestation is vital to the well being of your family, home and domestic pets. There are over 2,000 species of flea worldwide but the most common types of flea in the UK are cat fleas, dog fleas and human fleas.  A female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day and 1,500 in a lifetime, making the infestation rate phenomenal.

Flea bites cause an itching sensation and some people and animals can suffer allergic reactions to flea saliva resulting in rashes. Flea bites generally result in the formation of a slightly raised, swollen itching spot with a single puncture point at the centre (similar to a mosquito bite). The bites often appear in clusters or lines of two bites, and can remain itchy and inflamed for up to several weeks afterwards. Besides the problems posed by the creature itself, fleas can also act as a vector for disease. Fleas transmit not only a variety of viral, bacterial and rickettsial diseases to humans and other animals, but also protozoans and helminths.

Fleas are wingless insects with mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood. They are external parasites living off the blood of mammals. They have a thin, laterally flattened body and large hind legs which allow them to jump onto passing hosts. Fleas can affect cats, dogs, birds, rabbits and humans.

While many flea problems begin on domestic pets, it’s estimated that 95 per cent of flea eggs, larvae and pupae live in the environment – on beds, rugs, carpets and sofas. This means that as well as treating your pet, it’s vital to treat the whole home environment too. For every flea found on an animal, it’s likely there are hundreds more developing unseen.

To get rid of your flea problem, it’s always wise to seek professional help. This ensures the problem is fully eradicated and helps avoid re-infestation. Contact your local branch or call to speak to one of our expert pest control technicians.
