Identifying Fleas

  • brown-black in colour
  • can jump but cannot fly
  • frequently originate from cats and dogs or their bedding
  • like carpet and central heating


Bites from fleas are usually restricted to below the knees, bites more evenly distributed on the human body are more frequently caused by bedbugs.

Treatments for fleas

  • a spray treatment for carpets and soft furnishings
  • an advice sheet with information about the insecticide used
  • measures to protect children and pets
  • for more serious infestations, a third visit may be required for an additional charge (see price list)


Please ensure an adult is present at all times during the treatment. 

To prepare your property before we arrive:

  • remove and get rid of all clutter
  • machine-wash all clothing and bedding at 60 degrees
  • vacuum carpets and soft furnishings
  • get pets de-fleaed and use a flea collar and/or flea tablets or drops
