Signs of a Flea Problem

Itchy? Here’s how you can tell if Fleas are a problem for you.

Fleas are insect pests with laterally compressed bodies, which allow them to move easily through the hairs or feathers on the host’s body (or in the case of humans, under clothes).

Fleas parasite a wide variety of animals including dogs, cats, humans, chickens, rabbits, squirrels, rats, ferrets, and mice. Fleas are not just a nuisance to their hosts, but can also cause acute irritation, infection and transfer of other parasites, such as, tapeworms.

The flea bite causes an itching sensation which in turn may result in the host attempting to remove the pest by biting, pecking, scratching etc the vicinity of the parasite.

  • Check your pets! You may see them crawling in their fur.
  • Look carefully on yourself and your pets for fine, black droppings called ‘fea dirt’.
  • Check pet bedding, carpets and rugs for ‘flea dirt’.

Fleas (Family Ctenocephalides)

A thorough Pest Risk Survey is required initially to determine the level of infestation. However, combating flea infestations requires a long time due to the fact that for each flea found on an animal there are several other insects developing in the proximity.

The animal should be treated with a suitable spot-on insecticide, such as Advantage or Frontline which will kill the fleas on the pet and in turn the pet itself will be a roving flea trap and mop up newly hatched fleas.

The animals bedding must then be washed at a temperature above 50 degrees C, and the environment will then be treated with a fogger and suitable spray insecticide. Frequent vacuuming is also helpful in line with our treatment, but you must immediately dispose of the vacuum bag afterwards.
