  FLEAS

What are they?
There are over 1,000 species of fleas throughout the world, but approximately 50 - 60 in Britain. The Cat Flea is probably the most widespread in Britain.

The Cat Flea is not known to be a disease carrier, although the Dog Flea is a host of Tapeworm. The Rat Flea or Oriental / Tropical Rat Flea is infamous for spreading the Bubonic Plague.

How do they live?
The Cat Flea will bite / feed on dogs and humans as well as cats. The adult Fleas invariably rest in and around its hosts bedding and living area.

The whitish legless larvae feed on protein rich debris, including the blood rich excreta of adult fleas. The female Cat Flea needs the blood of its host in order for it to lay viable eggs. The larvae spin a silky cocoon, which can remain dormant in buildings for long periods of time, waiting for a host before emerging possibly months later.

There can be a delay of several hours between the initial bite, and a reaction to the bite.

Pest Prevention
Treatments must be thorough. The source of the fleas must be identified and if a pet is responsible, it must be treated with a suitable veterinary product. Pet bedding will either need cleaning or disposing and infested areas should then be treated with a residual insecticide, usually by spraying.
