Flea FAQS

Yes. Fleas can hitch a ride if you’ve had contact with an infested animal or environment. That said, humans are not a fleas preferred host as their ability to reproduce and survive solely on humans is greatly reduced. They can still potentially survive for a number of months though!

No, this is something that will need to be done in conjunction with any flea treatment we provide and we would advise consulting with your vet for the most appropriate course of treatment.

Fleas are small reddy brown wingless insects, around 2-3mm in size. They have an elongated sucking mouthpart and long legs designed for jumping. This image shows what a flea looks like up close.

Yes, fleas are not the only insect that cause bites, other possibilities include bed bugs or mosquitos. Alternatively, it could be down to a skin condition or allergy. Our pest controllers are on hand to carry out a free site survey to identify whether fleas are responsible.

The easiest way to know if you have a flea problem is actually seeing fleas. They will usually be within the fur of your dog or cat or amongst your carpet or soft furnishings. You’ll notice that they are very quick to jump away when the fur is disturbed. Other signs include being bitten often around the ankle, observing your dog or cat scratching more than usual, or finding flea faces in your pets’ fur- it looks like salt and pepper from a shaker.

Getting rid of fleas involves working in partnership with you. If you have a pet that is a likely host then getting it treated is really important. Once this is done we will apply a professional use only insecticide to areas within your property where fleas are likely to reside, usually where pets sleep or rest, carpets, soft furnishings and around the edges of rooms where the floor and walls meet. This will kill all adult fleas and the residual effect will also treat fleas that later emerge.
