For every flea that lives on your cat or dog there will be 99 more starting to develop in your carpet and at some point in their lives you animal will suffer an infestation.
Their saliva is considered to be one of the most allergenic substances as it can cause a skin disease in pets which is called Flea Allergic Dermatitis (FAD) Also when fleas bite they take in blood and if the infestation is severe it could cause anaemia in puppies and kittens or even death.
Fleas can live between 7 and 14 days and will divide their time between living on your pet to feed and returning to your carpet to lay more eggs and this happens every day. The larvae then get’s buried into carpets and upholstery and can lay dormant for several months. When the adults sense warmth and vibrations they will jump onto your pet and start the cycle over again.
The most obvious sign of fleas will be that your pet is continuously scratching, you should also be able to see them in the fur of your pets, fleas are dark brown in colour and are approximately 1 – 2mm long, you should also find tiny black specks of flea dirt on your pet just under their fur. The height of the summer is when fleas are most rife; however they can be just as bad in the winter if you have a warm central heated home.
The winter time is the best time to de-flea your pet and just before the beginning of the summer. A continuous de-fleaing of your pet will keep them to a minimum.
