Friendly flea control

WITH COOLER weather fleas are entering homes looking for warmth by hitching lifts indoors on dogs or cats.

However, help is available from poison-free pest control specialists STV, who have introduced Flea Killer.

It works by mimicking warm-blooded hosts to attract fleas from carpet and bedding over a 10m radius, says the company.

Fleas are trapped on a special adhesive disk, which can be replenished every 2-4 weeks for £9.95 (01953 881 580; fax 01953 881 452).
