Selecting flea control measures depends to a large extent on the size of the problem. In many instances infestations of well kept houses can be easily traced to pests. Where this is not the case it is useful to establish the pest species. This will help to identify possible hosts and even the focus of the infestations. Control measures must be directed at the brood as well as the adult fleas. Insecticides can be used to treat infested premises and protect them from reinfestation. In addition, hosts can be treated directly, or rodenticides employed.
Adults can survive several weeks without a blood meal
The flea larvae thrive in dark, humid places such as animal bedding and carpet fluff, and feed on organic debris and adult flea excrement.
Adults fleas feed on the blood of the species to which they are adapted but will feed on other animals in the absence of the normal host.
Living on our pets and irritating humans a source of blood is valuable part of the flea's diet.
Adults fleas can survive several weeks without a blood meal.
Wall-to-wall carpeting provides a relatively undisturbed environment for flea larvae to develop, whilst central heating has served to ensure the ideal temperature conditions.
Irritation and allergic reactions can be caused by flea bites. Scientists believe that fleas were the cause of the bubonic plague (the ‘black death’) being transferred to humans back in 1665.
Fleas can be vectors of disease or may transmit parasitic worms. These can sometimes be transmitted to humans.
