Summer Fears of Explosion of Dog Fleas in Homes Come to Life

The British Pest Control Association predicted a Summer 2014 explosion of flea activity in homes, after the mild Winter and Spring and stress that it is vital to treat homes and furnishings as well as pets, to avoid an infestation.

Summer and Autumn 2014 have indeed brought a flea explosion and caused many pet owners tremendous problems, unless a regular effective flea control programme has been carried out. Pet owners must appreciate that just killing the fleas on pets is not enough; 95% of the flea life cycle takes place in pet’s bedding and home surroundings such as carpets, soft furnishings, etc.
