About fleas
Flea facts


  • Fleas are known to carry diseases such as typhus and can cause tapeworm which can easily be transported to humans.

  • A flea bite is painful and annoying, however everyone reacts differently to a flea bite and may or may not be affected.

  • Fleas are mostly associated with pets and in and around where they sleep or sit, but can also be found in other places like your beds, carpets or sofas.

  • Fleas are able to live for months without feeding on a host and we have actually seen them chasing after our techs when they have gone into a property that has been empty for a long time.

  • Just because you have no pets, this does not mean you can’t get fleas. Fleas are often brought into the workplace by staff and clients travelling on the buses and trains.

  • It is very difficult to eradicate fleas and their eggs without carrying out a specialist treatment.

How do you know you have fleas?


  • You, your employees, and your clients will get bitten. If you have pets in your business premises they will also get bitten and start scratching.

  • It is very likely if you have a bad problem that you may see live fleas jumping about in your premises.

  • If you look carefully on carpets, rugs or bedding you will see flea dirt which looks similar to ground black pepper.

  • Fleas eggs can also be seen but they will be less visible as they are small and white.

Offices are also another place where flea problems are common due to the large numbers of people congregating in them.

So dealing with the problem quickly and effectively will help to overcome these issues. Flea treatment should only be undertaken by a professional company as it is a specialist application which requires knowledge and experience as well as the correct insecticides.

Fumigation of pests
Our flea treatment
<span>1</span> Initial treatment

1 Initial treatment

  • On our first treatment, a BPCA qualified technician will try and identify the source of the infestation, usually the host animal and it is highly recommended that the client treats the host animal with a suitable product available online.  (This treatment is not be carried out by our technician, but by the owner of the host animal or a registered Vet)
  • It is not always the case that fleas come from cats or dogs as it is very easy for fleas to jump on to people whilst they are travelling, for instance on the underground or the buses.
  • A highly effective residual insecticide will then be applied to all high-risk areas using a manual sprayer.
  • This treatment will normally consist of spraying all carpets, furniture and any other areas that there have been reports of fleas.
  • The treatment is completely safe, however you will have to vacate the premises for at least four hours to allow the insecticide to settle and dry.
  • We operate a discreet out of hours service to minimize disruption to your business.
  • Once the first visit is complete, our technician will complete a detailed inspection report explaining what he has done and leave you with a contactless digital copy.
<span>2</span> Follow Up

2 Follow Up

  • Our techs will carry out a follow-up visit for fleas around the two-week mark after the initial treatment has been carried out
  • The premises are treated in exactly the same way as the initial visit.
  • Once our work is completed, our technician will complete a detailed inspection report explaining what they have done and leave you with a contactless digital copy.

Please note that before any treatment commences the property has to be prepared for treatment. Our helpful staff will give clear instructions on how to best prepare your property. Preparation is key to successful treatment and should never be taken lightly.  Our technicians are unable to carry out treatment to properties that are not properly prepared.
