Like most pests, fleas are not easy to find and deal with due to their size. These pests have a different behavioural pattern than most pests. Our Brisbane’s flea control team has dealt with these pests at both residential and commercial properties. Fleas are not known for biting humans but they do bite cats and dogs. This will cause a lot of discomfort for your pets. While Fleas do not bite humans, they can cause skin irritation that may lead to infections. Fleas are also able to hide in the fur of animals. This makes it difficult for you to identify their presence.

Your pets begin scratching themselves a lot more than before. Our experts always recommend quick response and treatment if you see any signs of flea infestation.

1. Dog Fleas
Dog fleas live in the fur of dogs and thrive on the diet of dog blood. These fleas are also known to bite humans. They are brown in colour but develop a black shade after a meal. Dog fleas are about 1mm to 4mm in size. We recommend professional help immediately if you see even one of these fleas.
2. Cat Fleas
Cat fleas have long but thin legs. This helps them jump. These fleas live inside cat fur and feed on their blood. Cat fleas can irritate your cats and make them unhappy.

Flea infestations are pretty common when it comes to pets. This is why it’s important that you get your pets checked regularly for any signs of fleas. Here are some of the well-known dangers of fleas:
1. Fleas do not usually bite humans but when they do, the bite is known to cause breathing problems, skin infections, swollen mouth, face, lips or hands.
2. Fleas can cause diseases like tapeworms in your pets.
3. Fleas also cause Flea Allergic Dermatitis in pets. This condition causes a lot of discomfort and hair loss for your pets.
4. Anaemia in cats is caused by fleas as well. If it’s not treated in time, it can endanger the life of your pet.
5. Fleas can infest rats and become the carriers of various deadly diseases that rats carry and spread.
6. Fleas can transmit murine typhus to humans. The symptoms of this disease are fever and chills, cough, body aches, loss of appetite, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain.
Fleas can infest your pets as soon as your dog or cat comes near them. These pests are in many places like gardens, roads, playgrounds, or in your backyard. Fleas are attracted to healthy pets. You can find them if you look for eggs or larvae in places where your pets leave any marks. Flea droppings are either red or black. This can also help you know about their presence.
