Flea Control Hoddesdon

EPC Pest Control Services

We specialise in Flea Control in Hoddesdon, with over 30 years of experience in the industry we can quickly identify the problem and recommend the best treatment to remove the infestation and deter fleas from returning in the future.

Fleas love your pet cat or dog but they can also feed on humans and frequently do with bites causing discomfort and if allowed to multiply can cause irritation and potential health concerns.

A typical house flea makes rapid movements making them hard to spot, a female can lay several hundred eggs in batches in the cat or dogs fur, bedding or places where the host lays. One flea can quickly turn into a problem if it is not treated correctly.

Fleas are one of the most resilient pests around living for between 3 - 4 months with their only real weakness being temperature, they prefer warmth which makes our pets and homes the perfect breeding ground.

Our Treatment Programme

The first step in any treatment is to identify the host of the fleas, normally a pet or dog and then treating these with an effective flea treatment. When an infestation has got out of control though further treatment is required to completely eradicate the fleas.

Our treatment programme consists of two visits. Our technician will asses the level of infestation and identify areas around the home that will need treatment such as pet beds, carpets and rugs. Treatment will be applied and then the second visit will be to ensure this has been effective.

On completion of the treatment our technician will leave a report with you with details of the treatments and recommendations to help prevent further infestations.

Facts About Fleas

Flea Control Hoddesdon

The cat flea is around 2mm long, a reddish brown colour and flattened laterally which allows it to move easily amongst the hair of its host. They have very distinct large jumping legs and a row of non-sensory black spines on the front margin of the head.

A female flea will lay hundreds of eggs at a time, from the egg emerges larva which are white in colour, these feed on the organic debris found in the bed of the host. When the larva is mature it spins a cocoon of silk which allows the pupa to develop into an adult flea. When triggered by a stimulus such as vibration the adult flea will emerge to feed on the host.

Fleas enjoy warm temperatures and are most interested in the parts of the home which aren't clean.

Problems caused by Fleas

Fleas can cause distress from the bites which depending on the number of fleas on the host can become considerable. They can also be a carrier of tapeworm which can be passed onto the host and they can cause serious digestive tract disease which if not treated can be fatal.

Comments from our customers



Best pest control. Always there to re assure and utmost professionalism.

Used EPC for the first time when they came to deal with mice at 2am and since then I would not use anyone else. Clearly know what they are doing unlike many other companies in this field. Highly recommended.

We had a mouse issue which we were trying to deal with using shop brought products..

The mice just kept eating it, we still had mice for a while until we called EPC, they carried out a treatment and blocked off all areas, great service, no more mice, I would highly recommend to my family and friends

Wow is all I can say, we had Bed Bugs in our property for months, we had a couple of well known companies in to deal with the issue, which they could not do..

They used just chemicals, after talking to EPC about a heat treatment and the treatment involved we went to the extra expense of trying it, at last we can sleep Bed Bug free, it is a bit expensive, but well worth the money when you see what they do, thanks again guys.
