How do I know I have fleas in my home
Firstly, in addition to getting flea bites you may see small fleas jumping in the carpet or on to your clothing. Wearing white or light coloured trousers would show up fleas if they land on you.
We would always recommend confirming that you physically have seen fleas rather than just thinking you have been bitten by something.
Flea lamps are a useful tool in determining if you have actually got fleas.
Why are fleas in my house?
Fleas can drop off of your pets and be introduced to your home from visitors. Also if you've just moved in, fleas could have been left behind when the previous occupiers moved out with their pets.

We can get rid of Fleas from your home !
Effective treatment involves appplying a residual insecticide directly to carpets and underneath sofas and chairs. Its important to treat all areas where pets may have frequented though so even if you dont have carpet in some rooms they are still likely to need treatment.
We'll give you a list of instructions to help you prepare for the treatment.
In most cases we recommend reapplying a flea treatment after 14 days to ensure they are all gone.
Any garments or pet bedding will need to washed also and we would suggest at +60 degrees to kill off al stages of the life cycle.
