Newcastle Flea Control
Our pest control team in Newcastle offer effective solutions to be bed bugs including the use of spray insecticide on carpets and furniture, or use a heat based solution, as with most small parasites. We can provide both, as well as cleanup. In addition, we can offer specialised anti-flea treatment for your cat or dog. The fleas will be exterminated by being washed out at a moderate temperature. Harmless anti-flea chemicals will then be washed into their fur.
Fleas can be dealt with by regular washing and vacuuming, but this leaves the possibility open of the colony surviving or returning once they have been dumped outside. Call us now for a free quote to exterminate your bed bugs!
Fleas are fairly similar to Bed Bugs, in that they are both parasitic blood feeders. They are attracted by vibration to feed on humans and other large mammals, most commonly cats and dogs. They come in specialised varieties for cats, dogs, and humans, and will usually prefer dense fur or hair to hide and nest in. Despite this fleas may also thrive in certain fabrics, such as thick carpets.
The flea moves from host to host to feed, jumping up to six feet in order to cross to a suitable site to suck blood. They can consume up to 16 times their own body mass! Fleas reproduce by laying vast numbers of eggs in nest sites, with the female flea depositing 6-8 eggs after each blood feeding. Fleas are fairly adaptable (even infesting gardens), but are most likely to appear in or around their favourite habitat of furry, unclean animals.
Fleas are also deeply attracted to unsanitary conditions and are widely known a common vector for dangerous diseases through blood transferal, most infamously the fourteenth-century black plague. Although today's flea usually proves far less dangerous, they should still be considered a sanitary concern in large numbers.
They can also cause intense discomfort to humans and pets alike, as their feeding bites tend to produce itchy and unpleasant marks. The clearest sign of a flea infestation are these bites, or your dog or cat itching themselves repeatedly. They can be hard to detect otherwise due to their minute size, except when jumping.
