Fleas

Fleas 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.

As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of fleas 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 the flea saliva. If you need help with fleas, call Rentokil today on 0800 218 2210.

Flea Species & Guides

Small and flightless insects, Fleas are external parasites that need a blood feed to lay eggs. The main flea species in the UK that can cause problems (even if you don't have pets) are Dog and Cat Fleas. Learn more about fleas appearances, lifecycles and behaviours. 

Rentokil’s Flea Treatments

Although fleas do not have wings, they have incredibly powerful elongated legs. These allow them to jump long distances and move easily between you and your pets, leaving behind itchy bites. Successful control requires flea treatment of both your property and your pets, if you have them.

At Rentokil, we offer safe, effective treatments for your home or business to ensure complete control of your flea infestation.
Our BPCA certified technicians understand the habits of flea species ensuring targeted treatments to get rid of all your fleas effectively.
