Flea Pest Control

This will be a surprise to most people-there are about 1400 species of flea and possibly 60 of these in the UK!

Flea Pest Control

All adult fleas are external parasites of warm blodded animals and birds. Their extreme specialisation to living in the hair and fur of the host has made them very slim laterally. Fleas are famous for their ability to jump much higher than their size suggests.

In the UK the main species we deal with are:-

Cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis)

Dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis)

Human flea (Pulex irritans)

Bird fleas (Ceratophyllus spp)

In my experience the most common flea is the cat flea, it is a very cosmopoliton pest and will target most warm blodded animals.

Flea infestations are best left to professionals, we get many calls from people who have spent lots of money trying to deal with a flea infestation only to give up. Often we charge less than they have already spent!
