Flea Facts

Fleas are a very difficult pest to tackle and can be distinguished from bed bugs by the way they move: fleas hope or jump as opposed to bed bugs which crawl. Adult fleas bite and feed on a host’s blood whereas larva tend to live on carpets or bedding and feed on adult fleas excrement.

A skin crawling thought considering the life cycle is only 4 weeks meaning they continuously breed and can also lay dormant for up to 12 months. There is a real need to get rid of them as soon as possible as if you don’t they will only become harder and harder to get rid of.

Fleas are a small (2mm) wingless insect that have spines which are pointed backwards and legs that enable it to jump extremely high. 

Adult fleas feed on warm-blooded animals while the larval stages live in the nest of the host and feed on the blood-rich faeces of the adult flea.

When fully developed, the adult waits within a self spun camouflaged silken cocoon until it detects the vibrations caused by a potential host – at this point it emerges and jumps on their prey. 

Female fleas can consume 15 times their body weight in blood in a single day.

Their bites can cause intense irritation around a central bright red spot but different people react differently to a bite, both in terms of degree of reaction and time taken to react – hence the need for flea pest control services immediately.

  • Fleas are incapable of laying eggs until they have had their first meal (of blood).
  • Even though there are over 2000 species of fleas, the cat flea accounts for most of the fleas that we see and feel.
  • Due to fleas having four life stages, they are difficult to kill. This is why we need to treat the area a couple of times, to ensure all of the different types are gone.
