Flea infestations are a common problem, especially among pet owners, and something that can be dealt with quickly and easily with our specialised ULV equipment.
Here at Emris Services we have successfully helped hundreds of customers get rid of fleas and we can help you in a discreet and professional manner.
For every flea that lives on your cat or dog there will be 99 more starting to develop in your carpet and, at some point in their lives, your animal will suffer an infestation, so you need to kill fleas in your carpet urgently.
Flea saliva is considered to be one of the most allergenic substances as it can cause a skin disease in pets which is called Flea Allergic Dermatitis (FAD.) Also, when fleas bite, they take in blood and, if the infestation is severe, it could cause anaemia in puppies and kittens or even death.
Fleas can live between 7 and 14 days and will divide their time between living on your pet to feed and returning to your carpet to lay more eggs and this happens every day. The larvae then get buried into carpets and upholstery where they can lay dormant for several months. When the adults sense warmth and vibrations they will jump onto your pet and start the cycle all over again.
Spotting Fleas in your Home
The most obvious sign of fleas will be that your pet is continuously scratching, you should also be able to see them in the fur of your pets, they are dark brown in colour and are approximately 1 – 2mm long, you should also find tiny black specks of flea dirt on your pet just under their fur. The height of the summer is when fleas are most rife; however, they can be just as bad in the winter if you have a warm central heated home.
The wintertime is the best time to de-flea your pet and just before the beginning of the summer. A continuous de-fleaing of your pet will keep them to a minimum.
