Flea bites are very irritating and can lead to eczema. If your pet is affected, it's likely that its bed is host to thousands of tiny larvae. Fleas don't live on humans but can often bite ankles and lower legs.
Flies will feed from faeces, then food and then back again which can cause bacterial transfer. This is from the hairs on their feet and also from the way they vomit onto their food before eating it

They are a reddish brown, flattened oval shape about the size of an apple pip and become fatter when they have fed. They are about all year round. Despite their name, they can be found anywhere, particularly where the carpet meets the wall at the head end of the bed or under loose wallpaper.
