Flea Treatment & Control



Flea infestations can be a real pain. One of the main issues with fleas is that due to their small size even as adults, their eggs and larvae are even harder to see. The chances being that if you see an adult flea, there are likely to be at least 10 eggs that you can’t see! Flea infestations can get out of hand very quickly as they are able to multiply rapidly. Plus them being quite difficult to see, it can seem very overwhelming dealing with this pest alone. 


But do not worry, SOS Pest Control can help! We have the knowledge, understanding and effective treatments to be able to deal with the problem quickly. 


Fleas can infest homes or offices. They are very good at hitching a ride on clothes and in bags so no warm environments are out of bounds. They will take comfort in carpets, sofas and curtains to name a few. It is important to keep any fabrics cleaned and areas hoovered on a regular basis. And remember, once you have hoovered, remove the bag and dispose of it immediately in order to take any potential fleas outside the building.


Fleas need food. This comes from the blood meals they enjoy from you or your pet. Their bites do not hurt at the time; however, they can cause redness, swelling and itching. Some people can have more adverse reactions to flea bites which can require treatment. These bites can really distress your pet too as they will constantly be scratching, trying to remove the adults and larvae from their fur. Adult fleas cannot fly, but they can however jump a considerable distance and height. This is how they are able to move from host to host.


A flea problem is nothing to be embarrassed about and please do not delay in calling us!
