The flea is a biting pest that is commonly associated with properties with pets and animals. Fleas react to movement, light changes and carbon dioxide and can jump huge distances (onto you!) using their extremely powerful back legs to get a blood meal. After a good feed a female can lay several hundred eggs.
There are a variety of different species of fleas, with the cat flea being the most common. They are generally believed to be transmitters of disease and must be dealt with. If you are getting bitten in a new property it could be that the prior owners had a cat or dog with a flea problem. Fleas may however be carried by most hairy animals and birds including cats, dogs, rabbits, rats, mice and livestock. Non-treatment can also lead to pets developing allergies.
Fleas can stay in the pupal stage for a year. The pupae can sense vibrations and emerge into the adult stage within three seconds and right away take a blood meal. This is why buildings that have been empty for a long period of time can appear to have a sudden flea infestation when humans enter.
Fleas have the tendency to bite about the lower leg and ankle, producing an unpleasant itch or rash. Flea bites tend to have a tiny red spot in the middle, surrounded by a reddened area. Commonly you will see two or three bites in a row on your ankles. Kids commonly react badly to flea bites. However if the bites are taking place during the night and on the upper body, bed bugs could be the cause.
Treatment for fleas is carried out most effectively using powerful professional strength residual insecticides. Because flea pupae (the stage before they emerge into adults) can have resistance to insecticides, a follow-up treatment from the pest controller may be recommended.
