Fleas – Pet owners bug to bear! It happens to all of us
By far our most frequent enquiries are as a result of fleas, and one thing many victims of this pest share is a sheer desperation after spending some hundreds of pounds on over the counter treatments which quite simply don’t work.
We have 60 species of fleas within the uk which all share one thing in common, they will all bite and feed on humans.

Flea infestations need a planned approach. The flea infestation can be dented with vigorous hoovering (empty the bag immediately), the treatment of the host pet and its bedding, and then residual and growth regulator applications to eradicate the flea at all lifecycle stages. It is crucial that an IGR (insect growth regulator) be used and this is what is lacking in most over the counter publicly available treatments.
We use the industry’s two leading chemicals which provide an encapsulated residual spray lasting upto three months within carpeted areas.
