What are common signs of a flea infestation?
There aren’t many common signs that you’re dealing with an infestation, but the few indications are quite easy to spot. If you’ve been bitten by them, there will be a small, red, itchy bump at the site of the bite. These bites are typically found on the feet and lower legs.
If you have pets, you might notice:
- Multiple small dots hidden away in their fur
- Increased licking, scratching, or even biting their fur
- Small black debris throughout their fur (this is their feces and not the actual fleas)
- Tapeworm infestation
- Fur loss
As pets are typically the carrier, the first step should be to check their fur if you suspect that you might be dealing with an infestation. If this is the case, you’ll also need to remember that you must treat your pet accordingly.
Can you have a flea infestation even if you don’t have a pet?
It’s possible to have an infestation even if you don’t have a pet. They can also spread to carpets and other areas of the home, like a bed or cracks. That said, it might be more difficult to spot an infestation without the telltale signs of a pet scratching ferociously.
They might not be able to fly, but they’re long-jump champions. The larvae are also mobile, albeit slowly. All in all, their might isn’t measured by their size but in their resilience. Once they identify a host, they will emerge from their cocoon and start to multiply.
Can you use over-the-counter products?
There are over-the-counter solutions that you can try when you suspect that you have an infestation. However, with this approach, you won’t be able to solve the source of the problem for good. In most cases, you’ll simply be back at square one when the fleas start to breed again. In fact, you’ll be worse off as you would have to spend money on products only to have to hire a professional pest control company.
For this reason, it’s best to do it right the first time and hire experienced exterminator for fleas. They will be able to check your entire home properly and identify the root cause of your infestation. By taking the time to complete a professional pest inspection, the chance that they will return is slim.
Just like with other types of infestation, such as a rodent problem, it’s strongly recommended to enlist the services of a reliable service as soon as possible. By delaying and hoping it will resolve on its own, you’re at risk that it can become worse. Plus, as they can be carriers of disease, there’s a lot more potentially at stake.
How much does flea treatment in Brisbane cost?
An internal treatment that includes an internal spray mist application of all the flooring areas can cost between $135 and $150 for a three-bedroom house. For a five-bedroom property, the average price is about $200.
If the yard outside needs to be sprayed and misted too, the cost will depend on the size of the external area. In this case, the average going rate is about $200 per 1,000 square metres.
Keep in mind that if you have pets, you’ll also need to ensure that they get the appropriate treatment.
How can you prevent a flea infestation in the home?
Like with many other types of pests, prevention is much easier than eradication. In addition to living on the host (a pet), these insects can also make a home for themselves in carpets, bedding, and other surfaces. While an infestation shouldn’t be seen as an indication of a dirty home, ensuring that you vacuum or sweep often can go a far way. When you’re done, it’s also important that you empty the bag of the vacuum cleaner outside.
In addition to general cleaning, it’s also key that pet bedding gets cleaned frequently using water and soap. As for pets, they need to receive regular flea treatments.
