How to Prevent Fleas for Flea Season

As Spring blooms and the weather warms up, it's that time again... Peak flea season. These pesky pests can jump on your pets and really make themselves at home, but with the right preparation and preventive measures, they can be kept at bay. We all want a happy and itch-free home for ourselves and our pets, so let’s dive into how to prepare and prevent fleas this Spring!

Fleas Overview

What actually are fleas? Fleas are small, wingless insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. They are notorious for causing itching, discomfort, and sometimes even more severe health issues in pets. Fleas reproduce rapidly and can infest your home in no time, making them a pet owner's worst nightmare.

Fleas In Spring FAQ

  • What and When is Flea Season?

    Flea season typically kicks into high gear during the warmer months, especially in Spring and Summer. While the UK may not be the warmest of places, temperatures are starting to rise so fleas become more active and seek out your pets for feeding and reproduction. Therefore, it's crucial to be proactive in preparing for peak flea season and implementing preventive measures to protect your pets and home.

  • Are Fleas Bad In Spring?

    Fleas tend to thrive in warmer temperatures, making Spring to Summer their favourite time of the year. As temperatures rise and humidity increases, fleas come out in force, posing potential problems for both pets and humans. Springtime activities, such as hiking or spending time outdoors, can increase exposure to fleas, leading to our furry friends getting infested and fleas entering homes. To prevent infestations in Spring, pet owners should keep an eye out for flea signs and symptoms whilst maintaining regular flea prevention measures.

  • Why Do Fleas Like Warmer Weather?

    Fleas are most active in warm and humid environments, making Spring and Summer the perfect breeding grounds for these pesky parasites. Warmer weather accelerates the flea life cycle, allowing them to reproduce more rapidly and infest in your pets (and home!) more effectively. Not to mention, fleas are also attracted to the body heat and the carbon dioxide emitted by our pets, making them even more active as they spend more time outdoors.

How to Prevent Fleas for Flea Season

To prepare for flea season and minimise the risk of flea infestations in your home and pets, let's look at some preventative measures:

  • Flea Preventatives - Regular use of vet-approved flea preventatives like Itch Flea Treatment for dogs and Itch Flea Treatment for cats is crucial for long-term protection for your pet, your home and your family.

  • Treating the Environment - Addressing your pet’s environment is essential to prevent infestation. Regular hoovering, cleaning, and use of sprays can help eliminate fleas and their eggs from your home. With 95% of fleas living in your home environment, not on your pet, treat your space with the Itch Flea Home Spray to irradicate fleas, ticks, worms and lice.

  • Limit Outdoor Exposure - Be mindful of areas where fleas thrive, such as tall grass and wooded spots. Limit your pet's exposure to these environments.

  • Consistency - Flea control is an ongoing effort. Regular treatments and preventive measures are the key to keeping fleas at bay!
