The flea is a biting pest that is typically associated with properties with pets and animals. Fleas respond to movement, light changes and carbon dioxide and can leap enormous distances (onto you!) making use of their extremely powerful back legs to get a blood meal. After a good feed a female can lay several hundred eggs.
There are a number of different species of fleas, with the cat flea being the most commonplace. 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 result in pets developing allergies.
Fleas can keep in the pupal stage for a year. The pupae can sense vibrations and develop 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 time can appear to have a sudden flea infestation when people enter.
Fleas have the tendency to bite about the lower leg and ankle, creating an unpleasant itch or rash. Flea bites tend to have a tiny red spot in the center, surrounded by a reddened area. Typically 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 at night and on the upper body, bed bugs could be the cause.
Treatment for fleas is carried out most efficiently using potent 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 advisable.
