What are fleas?

Fleas are small insects that feed on blood. They feed off both humans and pets. They can also lay their eggs in carpets and skirting boards.

How do you spot fleas?

They are:

  • brown in colour
  • usually 1/10  of an inch (2 – 3 mm) in size
  • they leave small, red and itchy  bite marks 

How do you stop fleas coming into your home?

If you have pets, treat them with anti-flea drops from a vet. You can also find treatments and sprays at pet shops.

How do you get rid of fleas in your home?

We can spray floors, carpets and skirting boards with insecticide to kill them.
