Does anyone know how you can tell what is biting you? we moved house 6 days ago and either our new place is infested or our stuff picked up some beasties on the van.

What can I do now?

URGH totally freaking out here

can a dr tell from looking at the bites what it is?

So far it's only me. How can I keep them out of the dcs' room?

thanks!

fleas usually jump up from the carpet and bite your ankles.

you can get rid of them by hoovering, hoovering and hoovering, preferably with an upright that beats the eggs out, and especially round the edges of the room, which may also need spraying.

If you have your own cat or dog treated with flea-killer, they will jump onto it and be killed.
