Fleas are a very common pest in the UK, especially for those who have hairy pets such as cats and dogs. They are also transmitted by other common wildlife such as hedgehogs, foxes, squirrels, rabbits and mice. Flea bites can cause irritation, and occasionally adverse skin reactions.

They are also embarrassing if you have guests staying over, and could affect the reputation of a business. Fleas are usually visible and cause bites to ankles and legs.
