If your cat or dog has started to scratch or bite itself with regularity, you may be suffering from a flea infestation and require a flea exterminator . Not only do fleas pose a health concern to your pets, with the potential for allergic reactions, but they also move onto human hosts in search of blood meals, causing uncomfortable rashes or itches with each bite. The key to removing flea infestation is to break the breeding cycle, with the aim of a comprehensive and lasting flea treatment. Sick of seeing your furry friends in discomfort? Our residential pest control services can help. Read on for your comprehensive flea removal guide.
Typically around 2mm long, spotting fleas in home settings isn’t easy. You can use your pets to help you identify your flea control problem.
Observing your pet’s behaviour is the first step. Are they excessively scratching? Have overly reddened skin? Or, are they losing hair? These are all signs of flea infestation.
Fleas typically target the hindquarters of dogs and the head and neck of cats, and will be visible as a small reddy-brown insect. In addition, fine black flea droppings, or ‘flea dirt’, are also signs of infestation.
Fleas typically lay eggs on the body of your pets, but these fall off and lodge in carpets, bedding and floorboards. This means it’s never as simple as treating the fleas you identify on your pets, a comprehensive treatment from a proven flea exterminator is the only solution.
