Fleas are a common problem for pet owners across Berkshire and throughout the UK. These tiny, jumping insects can quickly take hold in your home, causing misery for both you and your pets. At Pest Control Berkshire, a family-run business with over 20 years of experience in pest control in Berkshire, we can help you eradicate fleas discreetly, quickly, and effectively.

How to Identify a Flea Infestation

If you suspect a flea infestation in your home, there are a few tell-tale signs to look out for:

  • Flea Bites: These appear as small, red, itchy bumps, typically around the ankles, feet, and lower legs.
  • Pet Scratching: Excessive scratching and biting by your dog or cat can be a strong indicator of fleas.
  • Visible Fleas: You might actually see fleas jumping on your pet's fur, or tiny black specks (flea droppings) in their fur or bedding.
  • Warm Lamp Trick: Place a warm lamp about 15cm above your carpet. Fleas are attracted to heat and light, so if they are present, you may see them jumping in the light after some patience.

Why Fleas Are Detrimental

While fleas aren't typically known to carry diseases transmissible to humans, their bites can be incredibly itchy and irritating for both you and your pets. Additionally, a flea infestation can lead to:

  • Skin Irritation & Allergies: Constant scratching from flea bites can lead to sore, inflamed skin and potential secondary infections.
  • Tapeworms: Fleas can transmit tapeworms to pets if they ingest an infected flea.
  • Anaemia: In severe cases of flea infestations, particularly on young animals, blood loss from flea bites can lead to anaemia.
