Fleas belong to the order Siphonaptera. They are small parasitic insects. There are 90 known species represented in Australia.
Adult fleas are bloodsuckers, the majority feeding on mammals (e.g. dogs and cats). The adult flea usually lays 4-8 eggs after each blood meal. Most eggs are laid on the host. They usually fall off and are distributed in virtually any area visited by the host animal. Fleas prefer warmer climates and are a big pest during summer. Your vet can help you treat the fleas on your pet whilst Clever Pest Control will eradicate them from your home.
It is important to treat the internals and externals of your home to ensure complete eradication. This is something that most pest control companies fail to do or advise clients.
