Pest Control Flea

Fleas live on the blood of warm-blooded animals. There are many types of flea and each prefers its own animal ‘host’, but they will feed on other types of animal, including humans. The human flea and dog flea are now rare in this country, and we are usually bitten by cat fleas.

Why are fleas a problem?

  • Fleas can carry diseases which affect humans.
  • Bites are unpleasant, which show as a tiny dark red spot in a red lump.

How flea looks like

  • Adult fleas are brown and about 3mm long.
  • They live on an animal or close by, often in pet bedding.
  • Their bodies are flattened, so that they can move through hair quickly.
  • They have large rear legs allow so they can jump to and from an animal.

How we can help to eliminate flea

We treat fleas. When we do, we will:
  • Visit your property to find out the size of the problem.
  • Treat the property by spraying the areas where the fleas are.

  • The treatment will work best if you:
  • Vacuum all carpets, furniture and pet bedding thoroughly before the visit
  • Empty the cleaner bag into a bin liner outside the house or use a new bag
  • Make sure floors are as clear as possible and move furniture away from walls
  • Check your pet for fleas and treat it as your vet tells you.
  • When we treat your property, we will explain what we have done and tell you what you can do to help stop the problem in the future.

    The treatment we use works for about six weeks, and you may need more treatments.

    You may still see fleas for some weeks after the treatment, because it does not affect the egg or early stages of the flea life cycle. But adults and larvae will die soon after the treatment. Emerging adults and larvae will die off when they come into contact with the treatment.


How to prevant your property from flea?

To control fleas:
  • Wash or dry clean all clothing and bedding likely to have fleas in them.
  • Leave cleaning the treated carpets for seven to ten days and then vacuum and clean your carpets often.
  • Check your pets often, and if you find fleas treat them as your vet tells you.
  • Clean or change pet bedding often.

Facts about Fleax

  • Flea eggs are very small and white.
  • Fleas lay their eggs on an animal or nearby in bedding, carpets or furniture.
  • They hatch and normally feed on flea droppings with blood in.
  • They turn into a pupa (pod) after two to three weeks and can stay in this stage for up to nine months.
  • Adults come out and feed on the animal. If there has not been an animal available for a long time many adults may come out at the same time.
