Fleas are a common problem that many pet owners notice. Whether you have dogs, cats or other furry animals, such as rabbits and guinea pigs, they can develop fleas if they come into contact with external animals. This might be other domestic pets, or foxes and other wildlife, all of which might have fleas.

Even if you don’t have pets, you might develop a flea infestation due to infected garments or used furniture being bought into your property. If someone you know has or works with animals and comes into contact with them regularly, then they could carry them into your space.

There are several species of fleas found in the UK, including human fleas, cat fleas, dog fleas and bird fleas. While they are named after the host animal they usually prefer, each species is not fussy and will bite or lay eggs on other species in search of a food source.

Unfortunately, fleas eat blood, so they can be incredibly uncomfortable if you get them in your home. You might find yourself or your pet scratching more often, which can lead to skin issues.

A flea infestation can be stressful in your home, but it can also be incredibly damaging to your business. They can enter on visitors, be they human or animal, and once they take hold, they can be hard to treat and damaging to your organisation. They can harm your reputation and potentially lead to issues with regulators, particularly for health and safety-focused industries such as hospitality and healthcare, which is why many companies turn to us for commercial pest control when dealing with fleas.

Whether you need a residential or commercial flea treatment, BH Pest Control can help. We operate throughout Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas and offer fast, effective flea removal treatments that you can rely on.

Call 01908 412488 to book a professional pest control treatment and get rid of your flea problem for good.

Common Signs Of Fleas

Being just 1/8 of an inch in size, it can be incredibly difficult to spot fleas themselves. However, there are many signs that can indicate a flea problem, including:

  • Increased Scratching: Itchiness is one of the most common signs of fleas. You might notice yourself or your pet becoming itchier and scratching more relentlessly.
  • Rashes Or Bites: As a result of your increased scratching, you might notice rashes appearing on your skin. Fleas also leave small, round marks on the skin due to biting. These marks are more likely to be noticed on your skin, as your pet’s is obscured by its fur, but you should also check them for bite marks and skin irritation.
  • Flea Eggs: If you see small, white specks on your pets, carpets, clothing or soft furniture, then these could be flea eggs. As they’re very small, flea eggs might be mistaken for pet dander, so you need to look out for other indications of flea activity.
  • Flea Dirt: Flea droppings, known as flea dirt, are small dark brown flecks that can appear on your animals and home furnishings. Depending on the size of your infestation, flea droppings can be found in small numbers or large clumps.

If you notice any of these signs of flea activity, then you need to contact us to book your professional flea removal appointment.

If you find yourself facing a flea infestation, it’s important that you don’t delay and book professional flea pest control as soon as possible.

While DIY flea products might seem cost-effective, they’re often not strong enough to remove major flea infestations.

Also, fleas can get into even the smallest crevices and hide inside soft furnishings, pet bedding, and even skirting boards or behind loose wallpaper.

If you don’t pay particular attention to all these areas, then you might find that the fleas keep coming back.
