Fleas can consume 15 times their own body weight in blood daily. With a severe infestation, this can really add up. This level of blood loss can cause health problems to the host, such as anaemia. Hazel Grove flea treatment can help to improve the victim's health.

Relative to their body-size, fleas are one of the best jumpers in the animal kingdom. They can jump 8 inches vertically and 13 inches horizontally. This enables them to reach a host, and also to escape from danger. With agility like that, a flea infestation can be a difficult thing to get rid of.
