The flea is a biting pest that is typically associated with properties with pets and animals. Fleas respond to motion, light changes and carbon dioxide and can leap enormous distances (onto you!) making use of their astonishingly powerful back legs to grab a blood meal. After a meal a female may lay several hundred eggs.
There are a number of different species of fleas, with the cat flea being the most commonplace. They are generally thought to be transmitters of disease and must be dealt with. If you are getting bitten in a new property it could be that the former 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 keep 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 properties that have been empty for a long period of time can appear to have a sudden flea infestation when people enter.
Fleas tend to bite around the lower leg and ankle, producing an unpleasant itch or rash. Flea bites often 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. Youngsters commonly react badly to flea bites. However if the bites are happening at night and on the upper body, bed bugs could be the cause.
Treatment for fleas is carried out most successfully 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 advisable.
