Do Fleas Bite In Three's?

Well, I had never really thought about the fact that by turning on the heating in my home (and I did this very early on in November last year), to keep myself nice and cosy, I could be bringing previously dormant fleas or other dodgy biting insects in my home “to life”, so to speak.

But apparently the great winter/spring heating switch-on has an effect on fleas. I had thought it rather strange that I keep on getting the odd random single bites on my face and arm recently and yet I haven’t seen any pests flying around!

Dog fleaFleas tend to be more of a problem in homes with pets (sadly, we have no pets), but they tend to bite people on the legs and ankles (again, not in my case) and usually produce 2 or 3 bites in a row (but this was not the case for me). So, I am left to wonder what is biting me? It clearly isn’t fleas.

Nevertheless I should find out how to get rid of fleas, and ants and acne as I don’t want them to add to my bite collection.

It seems I will need to up the ante on my housekeeping chores to fight these biting insects, at just the time when all I want to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth of my central heating!!

Aedes mosquitoSo I know that its female mosquitoes that bite for example, but do some pests prefer to bite females more than males? It may sound like a stupid question, but my partner hasn’t had any insect bites – they only seem to be going for me!

All suggestions / responses welcome! Whatever the response though, it is certainly true what they (and we) seem to say pretty often…… you can never escape pest control.
