Do you think you have fleas?
Don't waste time, book a treatment now with one of our experts
The thought of fleas in your home is enough to make most people’s skin crawl. Pets can pick up fleas from other animals or places and give them a ride home. Once they are in your home or premises, you’ll want to get rid of them fast.
There are several things you can do to get rid of fleas or ticks if you catch the problem early enough. Here’s our to-do list to get rid of fleas:
Before you do anything else, vacuum carpets, furnishings, cracks in the floorboards and upholstered furniture thoroughly. This will not only get rid of adult fleas, but also their eggs and larvae. The larvae feed on adult flea faeces and other organic matter, which collects in things like carpets and rugs. Removing this source of food is an important step.
Empty your vacuum cleaner very carefully away from the house because the fleas will still be alive.
Groom your pets regularly with a flea comb and wash their beds every week (ideally at 60°c or above).
If your pet is scratching or biting its fur you should talk to your vet. They can recommend the best flea/tick sprays or powders to use to treat your pet.
Put on tick repellent collars on your pets as an additional protection for your pest against ticks.
