The British Pest Control Association predicted a Summer 2014 explosion of flea activity in homes, after the mild Winter and Spring and stress that it is vital to treat homes and furnishings as well as pets, to avoid an infestation.
Summer and Autumn 2014 have indeed brought a flea explosion and caused many pet owners tremendous problems, unless a regular effective flea control programme has been carried out.
Pet owners must appreciate that just killing the fleas on pets is not enough; 95% of the flea life cycle takes place in pet’s bedding and home surroundings such as carpets, soft furnishings, etc. Many owners however, unfortunately, did not heed this advice. Even now in the Winter months Johnson’s customer service department is still receiving an unusually high number of calls from desperate pet owners for advice on how to deal with flea infestations on their pets, including in their carpets, rugs, soft furnishings, pet bedding etc. especially now central heating has been switched on.
