Pest Control - Fleas

Although it may not be something you wish to openly discuss with your friends or family, fleas are reasonably common and can turn up even in the best of homes.  The good news is that your pest control technician can get rid of them effectively.  There are about 60 different species of flea in Britain and many of these are associated with particular animals such as dogs, cats and birds.  Most flea infestations in houses are cat fleas.  The life cycle starts with a female flea laying eggs, not usually on the animal but normally on the floor or in the animals' bedding area.  The eggs hatch into larvae within 2-3 days and feed on any debris available.  After about 3-4 weeks the larvae spin a silk cocoon before emerging as adult fleas.
