Pest Control for Fleas

Fleas can be a problem, even in the most spotless house, or cleanest pet.

At Total Pest Control solutions, we specialise in getting rid of flea infestations in your home.

Based in Hillingdon, we are a mobile pest control business working across Hillingdon borough, South Bucks district, Three Rivers district and the surrounding areas.

Fleas on humans, or fleas on cats or dogs, need to be treated, as soon as they are detected, to stop the risk of enlargening the infestation.

Getting Rid Of Fleas In Your Home

If your pet is scratching, or you can see tiny dark specks in its fur, see small browny-black insects scurrying about, or if you have any unaccounted flea bites yourself, it most probably means, you need a safe and effective flea treatment carried out.

In order to get rid of fleas, to control a cat flea infestation, or a dog flea infestation, the host animal and home must be treated. The affected pet, can be treated by a vet, while the dwelling property can be treated with a spray insecticide.

The use of these flea control chemicals, is best left to a trained professional to maximise effectiveness.

Fleas are not the most severe of pests but are highly unpleasant to those in contact with them, causing bites and irritation to the skin.
Fleas live in the fur of your pet(s) and also in many places throughout the rooms of your house.

We frequently attend flea infestations where the occupiers have spent more on DIY treatments than if they would have if they had called us out at the beginning of their cat flea or dog flea infestation.

Cat fleas and dog fleas are different species, though, despite their name, cat fleas are capable of affecting dogs and humans.

About Fleas

Fleas may infest and breed in your home, and are a general nuisance. They tend to be problematic during September with their largest annual numbers, especially in areas of high population. In London fleas are not generally found to spread infections, but do inflict an unpleasant and irritating bite on their hosts.

  • Adult Fleas are about 2-7mm long and brownish in colour.
  • Fleas do not have wings but they do have very powerful legs and can jump large distances.
  • Female fleas can live up to 2 years and can lay 25 eggs a day. Their bodies are compressed which allows them to move efficiently through hairs, and their relatively large hind limbs allow them to have excellent jumping qualities.

Adult fleas live exclusively as parasites on warm-blooded animals such as cats, dogs and humans. The eggs are slightly sticky and are laid on hair, bedding or clothing of the host.

Carpets provide a relatively undisturbed environment for fleas to breed; they can also live in cracks and crevices of bare floors. Adults feed on the blood of the host animal (cat, dog, human). The larvae feed on the droppings of the adults.

Fleas are in most cases brought into your home by pets, but if you are also unlucky enough to have a rat or mice infestation, they too, are a major carrier of fleas into the home.

It is thought that every cat and dog will suffer a flea infestation at some point in their lives, so it is important that they are regularly checked by a veterinary surgeon, to lessen the chance, of fleas in your home.

For every flea you can see on your cat or dog, there may be 150-200 flea eggs close by, so a thorough professional flea treatment is a must.

Flea Bites

Flea bites result in red spots surrounded by reddened haloes, that are extremely itchy and can cause great discomfort in humans or household pets.

Before you begin any flea treatment of your pets flea bites, whether it is a cat flea infestation or a dog flea infestation, we strongly advise that you consult a Veterinarian.

If you are a victim of a flea bite, wash the flea bite, and then use an antiseptic cream, and apply an icepack, and resist the urge to scratch.

Treating flea bites merely addresses one symptom of a flea infestation. Flea extermination methods should be conducted in conjunction with flea bite treatment in order to ensure total flea kill and eradication.

Getting rid of fleas is a job we specialise in – whether it’s cat fleas, dog fleas, or any other kind of flea. Why not get in touch?

I reached out to Gerry about a wasp infestation on a Sunday morning. He was incredibly helpful, explaining the procedure in a professional and friendly manner. He arrived on the same day and on time, coming by noon to resolve the issue. I'm really glad I contacted him.

Gerry was polite, informative and efficient. He was fast to come out and reassuring to speak with. Hopefully we don’t need to do this again, but if we do, we’d call him back.

I spoke to Gerry (The Wasp Man) from Total Pest Control about the wasp nest in our conservatory and he was there within the hour to deal with it. He was extremely professional, explained all about the procedure before doing a thorough examination to see the extent of the infestation. He then carried out the work efficiently and I’m happy to say the wasps are gone! Gerry was friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable I’m very happy to recommend him 😊

I called Gerry as I had a swarm of bees in my garden. He advised that we cannot harm them and he arranged for a beekeeper to come out and take them. They came that evening and removed approx 25k bees from a tree in my garden! Thank you Gerry for your fast and efficient help 👍

Exceptional service! Gerry is very professional and friendly. After I contacted him for the first time he came to our house the same day, within a few hours to get rid of a mouse issue. Every occasion he came he always gave me an ETA and was very timely. He was really thorough and set traps and bait to ensure he covered all bases after inspecting our house.He went above and beyond, gave invaluable advise as to how to block any potential entry points. Within 3.5 hours he worked his magic and his traps caught the mouse. He'd asked me to contact him if anything was caught and as promised, true to his word came the next day to dispose of it. Gerry did not charge me anything for this follow-up visit. We continued to monitor the traps and after a week it was safe to say there was only just the one that got in! He left some monitoring bait just in case to keep our mind at ease and was willing to leave the traps for a further week if we wanted.He is the best in the field and has a lot of patience and dedication. While I hope we do not need any further pest control assistance, I would definitely call on him again should we do so. I cannot recommend him highly enough – nothing short of excellent if there were more stars would add them!

Gerry is very professional and responsible. After I contacted him for the first time in August, he came to my house the next day to get rid of the wasps. He examined the situation carefully and applied spray to extinguish the wasp nest. He promised to take care of the issue until the end of this year. A few days ago, I noticed some wasps appearing around my house again. When I reported this to Gerry, he promptly came to my house the next day to assess the situation. He examined it carefully and explained in detail that the wasps might be from the neighboring house and passing by mine. True to his word, Gerry did not charge me anything for this follow-up visit. I truly appreciate his dedication, and I'm happy to provide positive feedback here. I am confident that I will contact Gerry again if I encounter any future wasp problems.

Today we thought we had a huge infestation of wasps, Gerry attended extremely quickly and was friendly and professional. He went to the garden to investigate and realised they were in fact honey bees. He was very knowledgeable and let us know about the bees behaviour reassuring us we need not worry as they would not be sticking around. Thank you so much would definitely call Gerry again in the future and recommend to others.

Gerry reassured me on the phone and swiftly came out to deal with my wasp problem. As promised he got rid of the nest quickly, smoothly and with no fuss at all. It all came with a guarantee we haven’t had to use and I recommend him highly. Excellent, professional service - and with a big smile!
