Professional Bebington Flea Treatment
There are many insects you wouldn’t bat an eyelid at, but spotting a flea in your home is certainly a reason to call in Bebington flea treatment specialists; they bite, multiply and spread disease. Once you see one, you know there are many more hidden in carpets, bedding and on your pets.
If this is the case for you, you’ve likely used Bebington flea treatment on your pets with special shampoos or repellents, and this is certainly the right thing to do; treating the target host is the first step towards eradicating a flea infestation.
However, this pest is not only present on pets, and in order to effectively kill off all the fleas, it pays to spray your whole household with insecticide. At Young’s Pest Control, we offer this exact Bebington flea treatment, but the advantage of using our flea removal service is we apply products much stronger than you would find on the high street.
The flea and diseases
• How the flea contributed to The Black Death
The flea is a carrier of the disease, a fact that was no different back in the 14th century when the plague known as The Black Death was rife. The part the flea played in the spread of the disease causing this pandemic was significant, as they acted as vectors between infected rats and humans.
• What diseases are fleas likely to spread today?
Today, disease-carrying fleas are less common but do exist. One such disease is Cat Scratch Fever, an infection that is spread by infected cats scratching humans. However, a more serious disease found to be spread by fleas is Typhus, a bacterial disease found in rats that fleas will transmit to humans.
If you call out Young’s Pest Control, a rat problem will be one thing we will spot, as part of our service we assess all properties before drawing up a plan.
The ideal breeding ground for a flea infestation
Firstly, a flea goes through four stages of development: egg, larva, pupa and adult flea. At each stage, a home provides warmth and shelter for this cycle to continue unbroken. To break it, Young’s Pest Control provides Bebington flea treatment services that treat all surfaces and break-up this cycle of reproduction.
Secondly, there is plenty of food on offer as the target host likely resides in an infested home, whether it is a pet or a human. The type of pet you have will likely tell you the species of flea causing you so much distress. A cat flea will primarily target cats whilst the dog flea will target dogs.
