Once a flea infestation has taken hold, it can be nearly impossible to get rid of without the help of a professional that is. Living with a flea infestation is not recommend and is quite detrimental to your health, your families health and that of your pets.
Flea infestation causes
There are a few contributing factors that make flea infestations so hard to tackle.
- Their minute size is just one of them. Being so small means they are very hard for the human eye to see. You may not even know they are there. That is until the itch becomes too much to bare!
- Fleas are professional hitch hikers. They are extremely nimble creatures and can jump large distances onto moving targets.
- They breed at a rapid rate and only require minimal sustenance for survival. If fleas are left unchecked they can very quickly become an infestation.

More often than not your beloved pets will be the culprit for bringing these pests into your home. If you notice your pet scratching more often then usual it might be time for a top-up on your flea treatment.
