Fleas often enter a building on dogs and cats. They’re commonly deposited in carpeted areas, in the garden.
Traces of flea feces are little black specks on your pets fur and skin. Look for them especially around their head and ears, on their back of the next, on their root of the trail or on the tail itself.
Fleas live on the outside of the body of animals (ectoparasites) and need to feed on the blood of these animals to be able to produce eggs. Fleas usually feed and lay their eggs while the pest is sleeping, the pet’s resting areas are where most fleas will be found. Many pets acquire fleas outside.
A good first step in the fight against fleas is to identify where they are most common. This is usually where your pet sends a lot of time (e.g. eating or sleeping). As flea eggs don’t stick to the animal and drop off, you can expect a lot of fleas in those areas.
You can test for the presence of fleas by using the white sock test. Walk through your home wearing white socks. The fleas, attracted by the warmth and movement as you walk, will jump to your feet and ankles. It is easy to see their dark bodies against the white background of the socks. If you are still not sure if and where you have fleas, you will require specialised traps effective in attracting fleas.

Very impressed. Called about a wasp’s nest, very friendly and helpful on the phone. Steve came round the next morning, dealt with it efficiently, and wasps were gone by the end of the day. – David
