Flea Treatment, Fumigation and Extermination in Crewe
Fleas are a common problem in homes with pets. Of course, you may discover a flea problem even if you don’t have pets, if the previous owners or tenants had cats or dogs. Fleas can also be carried on other small animals, such as rabbits, squirrels, mice or rats.
As parasites, the greatests concern about the presence of fleas in your home comes from their bites. Although not painful, these bites can result in an uncomfortable itch or rash. And while flea bites on people can cause distress, your pets often suffer much more. You may notice your cat or dog scratching frantically, trying to bite the fleas in their fur.
Not Sure If You Have Fleas? Here Are The Most Common Signs
The easiest way to spot a flea infestation is to see them crawling on your pet’s coat. They are usually reddish-brown and about 2 mm long. Also, check the head and neck of your pet as the most targeted areas by the fleas. Carefully look at your pet’s skin for fine black droppings (adult flea feces) that look like ground black pepper.
The one thing that’s not that easy to spot are the flea eggs. Fleas lay their eggs on the pet’s body, but they don’t stay there. Eggs easily fall off and become hidden in rugs, carpets, upholstery, bedding or gaps between floorboards. These eggs are only about 0.5 mm long, oval and white. This makes them almost impossible to see against rough surfaces and materials.
