We all love our pets… but sometimes we get a bit more than we bargained for from them! The most common species of flea in the UK is the Cat Flea – which also bites humans. Our poor cats are targeted by fleas because they love the warm, fluffy living environment they offer. Adult fleas feed on the blood of their host, which they obtain by inflicting bites that can cause intense irritation. Flea larvae then feed on the blood-rich faeces of the adults.
Pets should be treated regularly with special veterinary products to prevent attacks. If flea infestations are not treated properly bedding, carpets and other soft furnishings in the home can be affected, particularly in the summer. If they really take hold, you may need to engage the services of a professional to help get rid of them.
