Fleas are a common problem in homes especially those with cats or dogs. They can also frequently be found when moving into a home that previously had pets. There are many species of fleas, with the main concern being the distress that flea bites cause people and their pets. We have convenient, safe solutions to treat flea problems.
To help prevent fleas becoming established within your home it is essential that you vacuum carpets, furnishings, cracks in the floorboards and upholstered furniture to get rid of fleas and eggs. Taking great care when emptying the vacuum cleaner as fleas will still be alive.
If you have pets, a flea comb and regular grooming combined with weekly washing of their bedding, (ideally at above 50°C) is essential to kill fleas.
For persistent flea problems we provide a call out service to treat flea infestations. Our certified local technicians offer a fast, reliable and effective service to remove fleas from your home. They are also able to offer advice on other pest problems in your home.
The most common place to receive flea bites is on feet or lower legs, as cat or dog fleas will jump from pets, carpets, bedding or furnishings to feed. Human fleas are now uncommon in the UK, except for farming areas where they can survive on pigs, and then jump to humans. Human fleas will bite anywhere on the body and are associated with itchiness as fleas crawl over the skin.
If you have a smaller or less developed flea problem in your home, we provide a range of DIY flea control products to help remove these insects quickly and efficiently from your property. The range includes an Insect Killer spray that offers lasting protection against fleas and other household crawling insects.
