Fleas live on any warm-blooded animal such as humans, domestic animals and rodents. They can also breed in soft furnishings such as carpets, pet bedding, clothes and furniture. If you have a flea infestation, don’t be surprised to see them jumping in your carpet and sofa.
Thee are three key types of flea in the UK. The most common is the cat flea Ctenocephalides felis, it will also bite dogs and humans too. Less common are dog fleas Ctenocephalides canis and the rarest is the human flea Pulex irritans.
While there are lots of home remedies to treat fleas, you may find the problem reoccurs again and again. This is because around 95% of flea eggs, larvae and pupae live in the environment, not on pets so it is easy to miss a critical area in your home.
