Flea Pest Control
- Fleas are small, flat bodied insects that feeds on blood.
- There are a few different species of fleas in Australia.
- While the most common flea prefers to feed on the blood of cats and dogs, fleas can feed on human blood.
At Bug Busters, we provide pest inspections and flea pest control treatments for residential and commercial properties, including end of lease flea control treatments, right here 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.

What our Clients say
We had an appointment scheduled very quickly and easily with Bug Busters. Aaron was on time and a true professional. He was knowledgable, open, and explained the whole process easily and clearly. Gave us a guarantee that our problems would be solved and if there were any future issues he would attend to them himself with the utmost expedience. Aaron was a real pleasure to work with and i feel significantly more comfortable after working with him. Would recommend their services to anyone who needed them.
I found the young man named Deryn who came to deal with our rodent problem to be extremely polite, personable and knowledgeable. He was on time and friendly and knew a lot about the behaviours of the rat species. I would highly recommend Bug busters and will definately them for future pest problems when they arise.
Bugbusters installed termite traps around my house and shed many years ago. Every 3 months the traps are inspected for any termite activity. At intervals the house, ceiling and shed are are checked for termites. They have also dealt with wasp infestations and put rat baits in the ceiling.. Their operatives have always been helpful and friendly. I would recommend Bugbusters to anyone.
I have used Bug Busters on a number of occassions over the last 15 years. The last time only a few days ago.. Derryn was absolutely client focussed; professional; neat and cleaned up impeccably my jarrah floors that had just been re varnished. I have no hesitation to recommend this company.. Five stars from me. Paul Vic Park.
