Flea Control London - About Fleas


 The flea control London we provide is very effective indeed. The flea is small at around 2 mm long, reddish brown in colour and is flattened laterally, a feature which enables it to move easily among the hair of its vertebrate host.

 

The most distinctive features of the cat flea are the large jumping legs and the row of black non-sensory spines on the front margin of the head and on the rear of the first thoracic segment. These bristles or combs are a diagnostic feature of the cat flea.

 

The eyes are apparent as are the antennae, and the mouthparts, adapted for piercing and sucking, are typically seen projecting downwards from the head.

 

Where will you find them?

 

Although the cat and the dog are the preferred hosts for fleas – they are capable of feeding on humans, and frequently do, which is the reason wht getting professional flea control London is so important.


Without adequate flea control London, the distress caused by flea bites can be considerable in cats and humans. The cat flea is an intermediate host for the tapeworm, which normally develops in the digestive tract of the dogs, cats and some wild carnivores, but also occurs in man and particularly young children.

 

Vibration as a trigger for the adults to emerge from the pupa, mentioned above, frequently means that humans who go into empty premises where cats had previously been “in residence” suffer a high level of attack .



How does our flea control London work?


Treatment consists of identifying the source of the infestation, ie: the host animal(s), and if appropriate treating it with a suitable veterinary product. Such a treatment should not be carried out by a flea pest control technician but by the owner of the animal or a veterinarian.

 

A residual insecticide should then be applied to areas frequented by the animal. Normally this would consist of spraying all areas in the premises as a precaution. Once the first visit is complete our technician would complete a detailed inspection report explaining what he has done.
