Getting bitten by something?
Fleas are small wingless insects (about 2mm), red-brown in colour and flattened. The most common species of flea problems, for biting humans is the Cat Flea. Then the Bird Flea followed by the rare Dog Flea, the Human Fleas is extremely rare. There is little scientific evidence In the UK that Fleas spread disease. Obviously, a Flea bite can cause intense irritation to the skin. Different people react differently to a bite, some can be extreme and other take longer to show signs. The typical symptom of a flea bite is a small red spot about 5mm in diameter.
It’s difficult to prevent your pets from getting Fleas. However, there are some things you can do to reduce your chances of getting them:
- Pet maintenance – Applying veterinary approved Flea products to your pet, on a regular basis to kill any resident fleas.
- Vacuuming – Frequently vacuum the areas your pet is around, special attention to carpeted areas and any furniture that is frequented by your pet. (e.g. sofa or chair)
- Washing – Regularly wash your pet’s blanket, bedding and all other washable items in the hottest water possible (60 degs C is good).
- Gardening – Ensure you keep your garden neat and tidy by cutting your lawn and collecting up any leaves, hedge or grass cuttings etc.
