Fleas parasites which live off the blood of certain mammals and include cat/dog fleas, human fleas and rat fleas.
In the UK, human fleas are rarely a problem (and can be cured by removal of infested clothing) but cat/dog fleas may cause considerable nuisance.
A few adult fleas live on the animal host, while hundreds of eggs and larvae contaminate the pet’s bedding and favourite resting places.
Cat and dog fleas are not thought to transmit any serious illness to humans but they can cause severe irritation.
If you think that you have an infestation of these pests, please call Intercept pest control for advise and help.
