Insect PEST Control - Fleas

ACD Pest Control – Specialising in Pest Control

Flea Infestations

We carry out flea treatments in domestic and commercial premises.

If you think you have a flea infestation contact us to arrange a visit.

Most flea infestations are caused by a cat or dog flea which is brought into homes or businesses on cats, dogs or clothing.

Although fleas cannot fly, they are able to jump and will move from one host to another, feeding on the blood of both humans and animals. 

Although fleas are not thought to transmit any serious illness to humans, their bites can cause severe irritation.

Signs you may have a flea infestation are finding bite marks on your skin, animals consistently scratching and discovering flea droppings.

Flea Droppings

Flea droppings are black specks which turn red if you add a few drops of water to them (this releases the dried digested blood within the droppings).

Flea Bites

The NHS guide to insect bites is a useful tool when trying to identify if you have flea bites on your skin.

How can ACD Pest Control help?

Flea infestations can be treated with an insecticide which will eliminate the fleas.

To ensure effective treatment there are additional actions which must be taken prior to the treatment, such as treating any animals within the home for fleas.

Prior to undertaking any treatment we will explain what needs to be done and any actions that must be taken after the treatment has been completed.
