Fleas are itchy, blood-sucking insects that are smaller and faster than many people think at first. If you have an indoor/outdoor pet, chances are a flea took it's chance to jump onto your pet's fur coat and hitch a ride inside your home. Carpets are a wonderful place for fleas to breed, hiding underneath the top layer of carpet where most vacuum cleaners can't reach them. Fleas can reproduce by the thousands in just a few days time. Fleas can carry serious diseases, so it's important to take care of them the first time around by hiring a professional Surrey pest control service.
