London flea control problems and flea infestations are one of the commonest pest control issues, particularly in households with pets. That said, fleas can affect pet-free London homes too and once an infestation has taken hold, it can be very difficult to control and eradicate.
One of the first main signs of a London flea control problem is small and incredibly itchy bites that can cause both annoyance and pain, but more seriously can also need antibiotic treatment if they become infected. Fleas can also infect family pets with diseases that London residents are not susceptible to, putting your pets at significant risk.
Flea control situations move quickly and get out of control rapidly, so if you see fleas in just one room of your London abode to begin with, it is likely they will soon infest the other rooms too, which makes controlling the problem much more difficult.
Flea Proofing & Removal Services
Flea treatments for pets, regular hoovering to remove potential fleas and decluttering to stop the fleas having places to hide in your London property are amongst the measures that can be taken in order to proof your home from flea infestations and avoid the need for London flea removal. There are also many products available in high street stores to treat flea control problems but unfortunately none of these are 100% effective and fail to completely remove a flea infestation from your London home.
The usual way to catch and remove fleas from your pet is to use a fine-toothed comb and then apply treatment onto the fur, but it is much harder to get the eggs. Flea eggs can lay dormant for a extended periods of time, only hatching on feeling vibration, such as from furniture being moved or a rarely used cupboard being opened. This can cause re-infestation, just when you think you’ve solved the initial flea control issue.
