Professional Ashton-Under-Lyne Flea Treatment
Fleas are common, wingless insects that survive by sucking the blood of birds and mammals. Adult fleas are brown/red in colour and are about 2 to 7mm long. The shape of their mouths enables them to pierce the skin and suck blood from their victims. Their legs are quite large compared to their bodies; thus enabling them to easily jump from one victim to the other.
There are more than 2,000 flea species in the world. The cat flea, human flea, bird flea, and dog flea are the common types of fleas in the UK. Cat fleas are the majority, making up about 70% of fleas.
Where fleas live
Fleas live in the bodies of warm-blooded vertebrates such as birds, humans, cats, dogs, mice, and rats. Fleas’ larvae can thrive in warm, humid, undisturbed, and dark places such as carpets, rugs, soft furnishings, and bedding.
Why flea control is necessary
Flea control is important because these parasites can spread rapidly and become a menace to humans and animals. They suck blood from their hosts, causing intense irritation, hypersensitivity, allergic reactions, and swellings.
Fleas can transmit parasitic worms and are carriers of diseases such as bubonic plague and murine typhus. Dog fleas host dog tapeworms which can sometimes be transmitted to cats and humans. Fleas also settle on human hair, causing discomfort, irritation, itchiness and soreness.
Why treating fleas on your own is not enough
It takes patience to combat flea infestation in the home. The detection and thorough treatment of all flea hiding places is a job which requires experience in order to completely eradicate the infestation and prevent a recurrence. When fleas are found on humans or animals, it could be a sign that there are many more in the home.
Professional Ashton-Under-Lyne flea treatment involves identifying and dealing with the root cause of the problem. Many people are not able to identify the root cause and they could, therefore, end up wasting their money, time, and energy.
