Fleas can also be a secondary issue to the primary issue. Do you have mice control issues, rat control need to get rid of squirrels? Fleas can come in on all these other pests. Once fleas are in the home, we need to determine what they are feeding on and treat that problem. You may have another pest problem.

After mating, the female can lay many hundreds of eggs in batches after each blood meal. The eggs are lain in the cat’s fur, bedding, any areas wherever the cat is found. The eggs are less than a millimeter in size and are white, oval in shape. The larval stage occurs after the egg and which is (again) white in colour and legless. It is covered in large bristles. The larvae are not blood – suckers but feed on organic debris which is found in the cat’s bedding and general living area. When the larvae has matured, it is about 0.5 cm long and spins a cocoon. This pupates and (when triggered by stimuli e.g. vibration) emerges to feed on the cat.
Cats and dogs are the preferred host for this type of flea, however, they are more than capable of feeding upon humans. Their bites (on both cats and humans) can cause irritation and distress. Call us today.
During the survey, your pest-control technician will carry out a “risk-assessment” which is basically our way of checking for any hazards on the property / area. We will provide you, where possible, with advice for preventing fleas e.g. highlighting any factors that can improve the situation, such as: identifying the host animal, cleaning, etc.
