What are fleas?
Most flea infestations occur from the common cat and dog flea. Fleas will bite any warm-blooded vertebrates, such as cats, dogs, people, chickens, rats, rabbits, ferrets and mice.
Did you know that for every 5 fleas that are found on your pet cat or dog there can be up to 95 live fleas making home in your carpet!
Flea bites will cause a small, swollen itching spot with a single puncture point at the centre. There are often a few bites next to each other and can remain inflamed for several weeks, and some people have been known to have allergic reactions.
Fleas can become a health concern as they can cause transmission of disease, including viral and bacterial diseases.
