With the recent heatwave around Reading followed by mild and very wet weather; we are seeing an increase in customers reporting flea infestations. This type of weather provides ideal breeding conditions for fleas to thrive, especially in vast fields and open areas such as Langley Mead in Shinfield or Dinton Pastures in Woodley.
As an animal lover myself I always ensure both my cat and dog are up to date with their flea treatments using a spot-on flea treatment which is very easy to apply and will help in the fight against these pests. Frontline no longer appears to be effective in this area and I have found Advantage treatments to be far more effective at keeping fleas at bay.
