Fleas are very irritating. They bite and itch. They see you as food and if you have them in your house or your pet has them it can get very old, very quickly. There is an answer. You could contact a Pest Control Bromley company like They will soon be gone once left to their tender mercies. Knowledge is power and here are a few things that you might want to know about this little pest.

Fleas spread the plague. Hanging on the back of  the Brown/Black Rat the fleas soon started to spread the Black Death around the human population. However, it should be remembered that humans in medieval times had no interest in personal hygiene so they were probably infested with fleas in the first place.

The carpet is not the place that they lay their eggs. It’s a bit of a misconception that they do. They would much rather lay eggs in your pet’s fur. Not to worry you, but they like to lay lots and lots of eggs to make sure they hang around,

They were not circus performers. A Flea circus was a mechanical device that watch makers made to show off their skills dealing with intricate parts and pieces. It wasn’t a real flea on the trapeze or lifting weights.

Fleas have been around way longer than we have. Dinosaurs would have had the same issues with them as we do.
