Professional Bootle Flea Treatment
If you suffer from a flea infestation in your home, it is essential to deal with the problem quickly and professionally. Fleas bite humans and animals and draw blood from their host. Although many people do not realise that they have been bitten, some people are allergic to flea bites and can have severe reactions, while it is also possible for flea bites to become infected. Bootle flea treatment can be complicated, which means that it is essential to seek the services of a pest control expert.
What do fleas look like?
Fleas are often challenging to spot with the naked eye, as adult fleas are wingless and typically measure just two and a half millimetres. The bodies of fleas are reddish-brown and tend to be shiny. Their bodies are covered with tiny hairs that allow them to move quickly through the fur of animals. Fleas can jump long distances and have three sets of long legs. The fleas are covered in tiny spines and have piercing mouthparts to bite with and draw blood. Flea eggs usually hatch on the ground, especially in carpets and rugs in the home and in upholstery and cracks in the floor. It typically takes just two days for flea eggs to hatch.
What are the signs of a flea infestation?
There are many ways to detect if you have fleas in your home. These include:
• Pets that are constantly scratching and grooming themselves
• Signs of dead fleas in the fur of pets
• Itchy bite marks on family members
• Flea dirt, the faeces from adult fleas, in pet beds, rugs and carpets. Flea dirt looks a little like coarsely ground black pepper.
What are the different types of Bootle flea treatment?
The type of treatment will mainly depend on the size of the problem and will be determined by a pest control expert. Before treatment is decided on, the pest control expert will conduct a thorough survey of your home. Flea fumigation is one of the most common types of therapy and involves thoroughly spraying the inside of the house with a type of gas laced with an insecticide that will kill the fleas. After flea fumigation has been performed, it is essential to thoroughly clean your home, including the carpets, bedsheets and soft furnishing, to make sure that all traces of the insecticide have been removed. You will also need to vacuum and clean your home thoroughly to remove the dead fleas and their eggs. If the size of the infestation is small and relatively controlled, the pest control expert may opt for another method, such as baited traps.
