Flea Control in Brisbane

Flea problems - Results Home Services

Our pets are like family but they can make your home more susceptible to a flea infestation. Fleas are a common pest across Australia and are commonly shared through pets but fleas aren't picky about their host and will also bite humans if they are available.

Some people are shocked to find they have a flea problem, especially when they have an "inside pet" but it only take a few fleas to establish a residence before you have a full blown flea infestation to handle.

If you have noticed your pet scratching more than usual, check them for fleas and if you find them, be sure to have your pet's flea control brought up to date or better yet, look at having your house and yard also protected against fleas.

Whilst being pro-active with your pet's flea control it's still possible for fleas to be introduced to your home through other means. Us humans for example can unwittingly introduce fleas into our environment. Fleas will use humans to hitch hike into a new home and establish a population, once there, all they need is blood hosts (ie. you and your furry friend).

Life cycle of a flea - Results Termite Treatments and Pest Management Services

Fleas are parasites that will feed on both our and our pet's blood. They can bite up to 400 times per day and feast on 15 times their own weight in blood in one day. Fleas will jump off and on hosts at will and lay up to 50 eggs per day. So you can see how a few fleas can turn into many fleas in no time at all.

If you have a flea problem call Results Home Services on 3823 2500 before it gets any worse and have a professional flea treatment done. We use an insect growth regulator (IGR) during the treatment which stops the newly hatched fleas from developing on to the next life cycle stage so they are unable to breed and multiply.
