Fleas and ticks

Fleas and ticks are a common problem in homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas and ticks even if you do not have pets, if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs.  

Fleas and ticks may also be carried on other, especially hairy, animals like rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats and mice.

As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of fleas in home or business comes from their bites. Although these are not painful, they can result in an uncomfortable itch or rash. Your pets could also develop allergies to flea saliva.

Rentokil’s flea/tick treatments

Successful control requires treatment of both your property and your pets, if you have them.

At Rentokil, we offer safe, effective treatments for your home or business to ensure complete control of your infestation. Our certified technicians understand the habits of flea species ensuring targeted treatments to get rid of all your fleas.
