Flea Control Perth

At Bug Busters, we provide pest inspections and flea pest control treatments for residential and commercial properties in Perth. There are over 2,000 species of fleas known in the world. The most common of these is the cat flea. Although its name indicates its general preference, this flea is highly adaptable and will just as easily live on dogs.

Fleas will bite humans when they are in need of the rich protein source given by our blood, this is usually necessary for egg production. They have a lifespan of approximately 21 days, yet, in this time they can lay over 700 eggs. The larvae of the flea will cocoon after two weeks of hatching; however, flea pupates can remain in a state of hibernation for up to a year until the presence of a potential host is felt.

Fleas can be responsible for the outbreak of allergenic reactions, skin reactions, blood borne diseases and the spread of tape worm when transferring from one host to the other.
