COMMON Pests

Fleas eradication and treatment

Fleas are pests in households and businesses and can be very invasive. The Wollongong climate offers ideal living conditions and can see a small infestation quickly get out of control.

When the warmer weather comes upon us fleas can enter your home, workplace and yards. When having pets that are inside and outdoor it is important to keep up the flea treatment especially in the summer period as fleas can be very irritating if they enter the home and start breeding.

When treating for fleas, we add a growth inhibitor to the main chemical. The growth inhibitors main function is to eradicate the eggs that may hatch after the treatment has been completed. Adult fleas can lay eggs, so this means the cycle will be broken.

They are a flat oval shape and brown in colour, and are approx. 2.5mm long, but this can vary if they have just fed. Fleas have a head, mouth, two eyes, six legs and two antennae and are a sucking type of insect.

The Pupa stage of the flea can remain dormant for up to 12 months depending on conditions. Adult fleas will emerge from the pupa stage when sensing a blood meal, vibrations or the warm weather.
