Fleas are tiny parasitic insects that feed off blood. Most fleas target pests but it’s not rare to have humans as well, although this occurs less frequently than with pets. Fleas are hard to spot because of their size but a change in animals’ behaviour for instance might be a very big giveaway. Dogs and cats are the most common pets that people own when they excessively scratch themselves.
If you suspect a flea infestation, contact the professionals at Flea Control Peterborough! We have experts on the team who can get rid of your property of fleas as soon as possible!
- Make sure that you do not have a flea infestation. For this, you will need to check several places including thoroughly inspecting your dog’s or cat’s fur. You might even need a flashlamp to see better. Even though fleas are very hard to spot, if you have an infestation and have the right tools, fleas might show themselves. You will need to inspect all kinds of places they rest and relax, that included their bedding as well!
- Next is inspecting the actual pet. This might be proven to be difficult. If you are not confident in your pet’s cooperation, you might take the pet to a professional groomer and explain the situation. But if you’re up for the task yourself, then all you need is shampoo, a comb with its teeth close to each other, and water. What you need to do is wash the pet with soap water and slowly run a comb through it. Since fleas are dark in colour, the flea will be easy to spot on the soap’s surface.
- If the flea infestation on the pet is confirmed, the best way to go about this is to take the pet to a specialist who can deal with the fleas, It is best left to a professional. Also, make sure that no fleas are left on your bedding. If you have fleas on your bedding and are not sure how big the infestation is, then it is best to hire a flea control expert from Flea Control Peterborough that can inspect the interior, confirm an infestation, and provide viable solutions to get rid of fleas for good.
