Put an End to Itchy Bites – Book Flea Treatment in Sydney
As cuddly and adorable pets can be, sometimes they can cause quite a bit of trouble without even knowing it. We speak, of course, about fleas. Using your pets as a temporary ride, they will infest your home and reproduce at an astounding rate before you even receive your first bite.
In such cases, over-the-counter insecticides will often prove to be ineffective, and you may even accidentally poison your pet! If you don’t want to take such risks (and you really shouldn’t), trust your flea exterminator in Sydney to efficiently free your home from the vicious creatures.
A skilled exterminator will visit your property at a day and time of your preference. He will make sure to inspect every inch of your property in order to pinpoint the source of your flea infestation.
Normally, our flea treatment in Sydney can be concluded in a single session. The pest controller will use an insecticide spray with a strong knock-down effect on any infested area in your property. The spray has a 3-month-long residual effect, meaning that any fleas that decide to get too close to your property during this period will get eliminated almost immediately.
If you booked our complete service, you can benefit from up to two free follow-up visits. Keep in mind that your bonus visits can be claimed within the first 3 months after your initial treatment.
When the professional revisits your property, he will take another look around to determine if the treatment was effective. If not, he can spray the surfaces again to deal with all remaining fleas.
IMPORTANT: Please take your pets to the vet a day before the service and present the pest technician with a certificate for doing so, otherwise we cannot offer you a service warranty.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the feeding habits of fleas?
Adult fleas feed on mammal blood, but it is the females who really take things too far (they can drink 15 times their own weight per day). However, their larvae feed from pet or human dandruff, discarded skin, hair, and any other organic debris they can find in your property.
Where do these bugs prefer to hide?
Unfortunately, you will often find fleas comfortably snuggled in your pet’s fur. Their eggs can also spread throughout your entire property, infesting your bedding, furniture, and flooring. As for larvae, they often lurk deep within the carpet fabric or in convenient hardwood floor crevices.
How quickly can fleas reproduce?
Incredibly fast – expect anywhere between 40 and 50 eggs each day! This means that a single female flea can lay up to 2,000 eggs during its 2-month lifespan. If that happens, your only solution is to book a professional flea treatment as DIY methods won’t do the job fast enough.
Can fleas transmit any diseases?
Yes, a great variety of them at that. While it’s highly unlikely for a human being to contract most of these diseases, a potential infection can have an adverse effect on your health. Some of the diseases these insects may carry include typhus, bubonic plague, and even worm parasites.
What should I do if I have fleas in my bed?
Wash all your bedding at a high temperature setting. You should also spend some time thoroughly vacuuming all nearby surfaces to remove flea eggs and your pet should not be allowed to enter your bedroom until you have this situation sorted out by the professionals.
I booked your flea control in Sydney. What now?
Please vacuum all affected surfaces prior to the service. You will also need to remove your pets for the duration of the treatment and to get rid of their beds. If disposal is not an option, the expert can spray the beds and you can wash and use them again after a period of 3 weeks.
