Fascinating Facts

The flea belongs to the order of insects known as siphonaptera, they are wingless insects with well developed rear legs, which allows them to jump. Their mouth parts are adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood.

There are 4 types of fleas: Cat, Dog, bird and human.

The cat flea causes the most problems British home owners and if there is not an animal around or there are a lot of fleas they resort to biting humans, usually around the ankles and legs.

Once fleas have established themselves within a home animals will need to be carefully treated as well as the home itself, off the shelf aerosol products are not normally effective.
