Common Signs of Fleas
Often, those who are struggling with fleas have seen signs of them. You may have found them in your pet's hair or even just generally in the areas of your property. You could've even been bitten yourself. Suppose your pet has been itching and scratching its fur a lot; in this situation, it is best to check their coat often. Whilst fleas are tiny, they can still be somewhat visible enough to detect. Fleas are usually dark brown and roughly 1-2mm in length.
It may be that you have recently moved into a new property that previously had a pet or several; you may also be suffering from a flea problem, even without animals around. In this scenario, the fleas will focus on the humans living in the home so that they may bother you and your household.
Fleas tend to be more of a problem in the summertime, but warm central heated homes also attract these pests. It can mean that fleas can remain a problem you may suffer from even in the winter. So, how do you know if you have a fleas problem in your household or your company property? To reiterate the commons signs, these are what to look out for:
Look out for bites anywhere on yourself or your pets; fleas bite us to feed on the blood; it allows them to lay eggs. Unlike the bites you may receive from other pests such as insects, rats or squirrels, the bites you will find from fleas will be tiny with central red spots. Spots like these can often appear in groups or clumps of three or four or appear in lines. They will form small scabs with light red halos surrounding them.
This is a more common sign that you will be able to detect easily. Fleas can make their home and lay their eggs in your pets' fur (rabbits, cats or dogs). It can cause immense discomfort. Much like when human get lice, the feeling can make them itch.
Fleas are tiny, approximately 1-2mm. If your property is empty or not much furniture or furniture of lighter colours, they might be easy to spot.
Whilst fleas are commonly associated with pets, they can be found in many other places around the household, for example, beds, inside carpets or nesting in sofas. As soon as you spot fleas or any other signs, we would definitely highly recommend contacting us or any local pest control almost immediately. Since fleas bite and gnaw away at you and your pet's skin, it is regarded as an emergency. Pests like fleas tend to live on for months, even without food. They are extremely challenging to eradicate and their laid eggs, especially not without specialist treatment.

There are numerous species of fleas that you can find in the UK. Those in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas can also be affected by several different species; however, professionals have found that many of the problems stem from cat fleas known as Ctenocephalides Felis and dog fleas Ctenocephalides Canis. Many in the UK and across the world have cats and dogs, sometimes many of them at that, as pets, it is highly likely that this form of a flea is most prominent.
There isn't a great deal of information on fleas diet as the answer is straightforward. Fleas eat or drink blood; it is why they like to leave nasty blots from the bites they give you and your pets. They can tuck into human blood if there are no animals around, but they prefer animal blood. These nasty bites must be treated fast. Our helpful professionals and pest technicians can offer guidance on how to rid them during visits.
Fleas absolutely love your pets! They will usually be found in the places your pets spend most of their time during the day or an area of your household they visit frequently. These places may be pets beds or their baskets. Fleas also infest carpets, and they use rugs to lay their eggs before passing them onto your pets or any passing pets in the area.
Fleas are more prone to hot or warm climates; heated spaces are better for them when they begin to lay their eggs. Most pests prefer warmer homes and rooms to nest in; however, most rodents, bugs, wasps or bees tend to enjoy lofts and wall cavities. Such is why flea problems are more prominent in the summer season when the weather is much warmer. However, even though this is the case, some households may still experience a flea infestation during the wintertime; this tends to be when the central heating systems are used more frequently.
Fleas tend to go through a four-stage life cycle. They begin life as eggs, become larvae and finally when they are fully matured adults, they are referred to as pupae. Once fleas are developed to the full extent, they begin to focus on feeding and reproducing primarily.
Fleas can jump to large distances, which allows them to jump from host to host, similarly to lice that tend to jump from head to head. Bites from fleas cause enormous distress and irritation to both pets and humans should they also be affected. Your pets can frantically attempt to bite or scratch the fleas to get them out of their fur. Calling a pest control service as soon as possible is the most advised to stop your pets from suffering.
