Fleas and Mites– what risk do they pose and how do I identify an infestation?


Fleas do not bite humans - rather, they will gnaw away on your household pets, making their lives miserable. As blood sucking parasites, they seek out a blood meal to provide protein for egg production.

These guys will multiply at an astonishing rate and their life cycle is made up of four stages (egg, larva, pupa and imago/adult) - it is therefore crucial that you put in effective flea control measures, so as to break the cycle.

Successful flea control depends on a number of factors – total eradication is difficult, and we would therefore encourage you to bring in a professional service to remove these pests from your home or workplace.

Mites – are they dangerous? How do I get rid of these pests?


Mites are another pest that are bothersome to your pets – they tend to be localized in the ears, meaning that your cat or dog will scratch or shake their head as a sign of an infestation.

Another species is the dust mite. As members of the spider family, they tend to inhabit soft furnishings and feed on human and animal skin flakes. They are a common cause of allergic reactions and can cause significant discomfort to those who suffer from allergy induced asthma.

If you are to reduce the risk posed by dust mites, it is important to have your mattress looked at – after all, they offer the ideal environment for these creatures to thrive.

Bed Bugs – what a nightmare.
