How high can fleas jump?
Cat fleas can jump around 8 inches in height and around 19 inches in distance, on human terms that's the same as a human being being able to jump over the wall into the Maidenhead Town Football Stadium and then from one stand across the pitch to another, quite a feat!
Cat and dog fleas are often carried in with your pet and will be found living in carpets of houses throughout Maidenhead, Ascot and Windsor; after feeding the female fleas’ will lay several hundred eggs in the hosts’animals fur. After 2 or 3 days these eggs drop off the animal and fall into carpeted areas which includes the pets bedding. They'll then hatch into hairy worm-like larvae which eventually will pupate and become adult fleas' within two months thereby continuing the cycle.
Fleas are able to survive for a year without feeding on your pet and without these, they are not averse to feeding off humans.
Maidenhead Pest Control for professional flea control.
Your guide to essential pre-treatment which is required prior to treatment:
Pick up all small items from the floors of affected areas.
Thoroughly vacuum clean the entire house and then remove the waste bag from INSIDE the vacuum cleaner and the house as this will contain live fleas, larvae and eggs.
If using a bag less vacuum cleaner, wash out the chamber with disinfectant to kill any remaining fleas and eggs.
All the floor area of the house will be sprayed with residual insecticide.
The property must then be vacated for at least eight hours; including all pets.
After the treatment do not vacuum for at least 14 days as missed flea eggs will hatch and come into contact with the insecticide.
