Flea and Biting insect control for home

London's flea control experts

Fleas can be a serious problem in your home as they can affect you, your children and your pets as they can jump from your carpet up to your ankles and calves causing annoying bites that can cause serious allergic reactions. They are difficult to see as they are so small, and they are able to live up to a year without feeding while they lie waiting for a suitable host.

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 can leave uncomfortable marks all over the body, and in some people can cause extreme allergies that will need medical treatment.

  • Fleas are mostly associated with pets, 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 even seen them chasing after our techs when they have gone into a property that has been empty for a long time.

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

How do you know you have them?

  • You will get bitten. If you have pets in your home 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 around in your premises.

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

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

How to eliminate fleas from your home
The thought of fleas in your home is enough to make you scratch and itch all over, but a lot of the time an infestation of fleas is not normally your fault. They can be brought in with domestic animals and people who are visiting who may already have them. They are difficult to spot and this makes identification difficult as they are likely to breed quickly and this can cause a serious health concern, so dealing with the problem quickly and effectively is paramount. 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. Give us a call now and schedule a visit.

Our flea treatment

1 Initial treatment

  • On our first treatment a BPCA qualified technician will try and identify the source of the infestation, i.e. the host animal, and if appropriate, recommend treating it with a suitable veterinary product. (This treatment should not be carried out by a pest control technician but by the owner of the animal or a veterinarian).
  • It is not always the case that fleas come from cats or dogs as it is very easy for fleas to jump onto people whilst they are travelling, for instance on the underground or 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 where 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 fill out a detailed inspection report explaining what he has done and leave you with a contactless digital copy.

2 Follow Up

  • We will need to carry out a follow-up treatment for fleas around two weeks after the initial treatment.
  • The premises will be treated in exactly the same way as the initial visit.
  • Once our work is completed our technician will fill out 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. Full instructions will be giving at the time of booking. It is imperative that the preparation instructions are adhered to as we are unable to treat premises that have not been prepared correctly.
