Fleas can be easily missed by the naked eye as they are only 2-3 mm long, and an infestation can actually be dormant in a property. Various species, including flea cocoons, can remain dormant for years until they are awoken by the vibration of footsteps.
Adult fleas feed on the blood of mammals and birds by piercing their skin, which causes the animals to scratch regularly. The pests spread swiftly in numbers as they lay eggs in your carpet every day, and once they sense movement, they will jump onto your pet to wreak havoc. The troublesome insects can live between seven and 14 days long.

They are a nuisance, but can also pose a serious problem for your animals, as disease can spread. It does not take long for an infestation to occur, so if you have spotted fleas in your home, do not hesitate to contact us.
