FLEA TREATMENT

FLEA PEST CONTROL

Flea Prevention & Treatment Specialists for Kent and the South East

Fleas are tiny reddish brown wingless insects, with backwardly directed spines and legs designed for jumping. Adult fleas are parasitic on warm-blooded animals and at their larval stages, they live in the nest of the host and feed on skin, feathers and the blood-rich faeces of the adult flea. When fully grown, flea larvae spin well camouflaged silken cocoons, where they wait as fully developed adults, until it detects the vibrations caused by a potential host. A flea's complete lifecycle only takes around a month in the summer.

Flea bites can cause intense irritation to its host, whether they are of the human or animal variety. Cat fleas are by far the most common species of flea, but they readily bites humans as well as cats.

DID YOU KNOW?

Fleas are blood-sucking parasites that can live up to a year.

A female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day, meaning a flea infestation can get out of hand very quickly!

It is estimated that around 95% of flea eggs, larvae and pupae live on pet bedding, rugs, carpets and sofas, rather than actually on your pet themselves.

Fleas can jump the equivalent distance, of a human jumping a double decker bus.

Fleas can cause nasty allergic reactions to cats and dogs.

It is really important to keep your pets up to date with their flea control products. Administering regular preventative flea treatment for dogs and cats, is far easier and cheaper, than having to administer a flea treatment to a house or commercial building.

In the event that you do have a flea infestation, we would always recommend using a pest control service with professional flea treatment experience to get rid of your flea problem.
