Fleas Control

What are Fleas Control?

Fleas Control are a common problem in UK homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas even if you do not have pets if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs. Fleas can also be carried on other (especially hairy) animals like rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats, mice, and livestock such as pigs.

Get Rid of Fleas from Your Home or Business:

As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of Fleas Control in your home or business comes from their bites. Although these are not painful, they can result in an uncomfortable itch or reactive rash. Your pets could also develop allergies to flea saliva.

How To Identify Signs of Fleas:

Your cat or dog looks to be in some discomfort and is constantly scratching or biting its fur. Is it a skin infection or could it be fleas feeding? But what do fleas look like? Before you take your pet to the vet there are a couple of ways to check if you have fleas in the home.

Signs Of Fleas:

Human Fleas Control are now uncommon in the UK. They find it hard to compete against vacuum cleaners and insecticides. However, our pets can come into contact with cat and dog fleas, leading to flea infestations in properties. If you have concerns about an infestation of fleas, you can look for these signs:

  1. Can you see Fleas Control crawling on your pet’s coat? They are normally reddy-brown and about 2mm long.
  2. Check the hindquarters of your dog or the head and neck of your cat. These are the areas that are targeted and where you might see signs of flea activity.
  3. Carefully look at your pet’s skin for fine black droppings. This is ‘flea dirt’ or adult flea faces and looks like ground black pepper. A good way to spot it is to use a flea comb over a sheet of white paper, which makes it easier to see the small black specks.
  4. Another sign of a potential flea problem is flea dirt on pet bedding, carpets, or rugs.

How To Get Rid of Fleas?

The thought of fleas is enough to make most people’s skin crawl and itch, but a flea infestation can happen through no fault of your own. Unlike other pests, fleas do not have wings they get around by jumping from surface to surface.

Your Pet Can Be the Cause:

Pets can pick up Fleas Control from other animals or places and give them a ride home, or the pupa can lay dormant and unseen in flooring until you move in. Once you find fleas, you’ll want to get rid of them fast before they become established in your home or business.

You Might Not See Them Until They Become a Lot!

Fleas are extremely small to the naked eye. They can be invisible especially when the larvae are developing into an adult flea. Waiting until an infestation has developed can mean it’s more difficult to exterminate, as they can become established very quickly. Infestation to develop can be tricky to exterminate once they have become established
