Widnes Flea Treatment Specialists

A flea infestation can be terrible. Even if you only have one cat or a single dog they can get everywhere without proper Widnes flea treatment. If you have lots of pets, maybe two dogs and a cat, then it can be an absolute nightmare. Especially if you are prone to be bitten.

Facts about fleas

  • FleaMany people think fleas have wings, but this is not true. In fact, they just jump great distances and can jump 150 times their own height. That's the same as a human being able to jump over a skyscraper such as the Empire State Building.
  • Fleas feed only on blood - be it human or animal - and can live for up to 100 days without blood. This means that they can live for quite a long time.
  • Couple this long life span with the fact that an adult female flea can lay up to 2000 eggs in her lifetime, and you can begin to see how fleas multiply and become such a big problem in the home.

Cat and dog fleasThe only way to ensure flea removal is by hiring specialists in pest control to employ Widnes flea treatment such as flea fumigation. These treatments are carried out in homes all over the world and pose no risk to humans and larger animals such as:

  • Hamsters
  • Reptiles
  • Dogs
  • Cats

However, to ensure the proper treatment properties must be empty whilst the flea fumigation takes place. These treatments really get into the hard to reach areas that would otherwise be missed or inaccessible and an empty house ensures all areas are covered.

Whilst a flea infestation carries no deadly harm to humans, it can have real consequences for pets.

Negative effects of fleas on pets
Some animals that have fleas may develop side effects:

  • Anaemia
  • Intense itching
  • Tapeworms

Some cats and dogs, and often people, may even develop an allergy to flea saliva which can cause them severe irritation and itching. In humans, this allergy will manifest itself in red blotches that are itchy and cause annoyance; the visible effects of this allergy is commonly called 'flea bites'. These ailments may not sound serious but they can be the cause of real discomfort and pain to your beloved Fido or Fluffy. Tapeworms can be especially troublesome and can sometimes lead to a visit to the vets.

It is generally not recommended to tackle flea problems yourself as flea removal needs to be a very thorough job carried out by professionals with the expertise and tools to do it correctly. Widnes flea treatment is essential for flea control and keeping your home free of these potentially harmful pests. By hiring professionals you are guaranteeing the removal of your pest problem. If pests as small as fleas can be eradicated, then any other pest is going to be a simple job for a truly professional company.
