Flea Control in Melbourne

Worried about fleas in your Melbourne home? With over 10 years of experience handling flea infestations across Melbourne, we know how to get rid of fleas and keep them away for good.

As a pet owner, you know how frustrating flea problems can be. Fleas cause itching and discomfort for your pets while also infesting your carpets, furniture, and bedding. This leads to bites, allergic reactions, and sleepless nights for both you and your furry friends. It’s important to get these pests under control quickly. Prolonged flea infestations can lead to allergy dermatitis, tapeworms and even anemia in pets. Acting fast is crucial. If left untreated, fleas can lay up to 50 eggs per day, worsening the infestation.

At Trust Pest Control Melbourne, our licensed technicians use proven methods to eliminate flea populations and prevent future flare-ups. We offer flea fogging to instantly kill adult fleas. This is followed by targeted spot treatments with long-lasting residuals. With thorough treatment of your entire home, yard, and pet sleeping areas, we stop the flea life cycle in its tracks. No eggs, larvae or pupae can survive.

With 100% satisfaction guaranteed, why wait? Get rid of fleas today for lasting comfort and peace of mind.

For flea removal in Melbourne homes with pets, contact our team 7 days a week.

What are Fleas?

Fleas are tiny (usually 1-4 mm long), wingless, blood-sucking insects that feed on pets and sometimes humans. These parasites have flat, streamlined bodies that allow them to move easily through fur. They have long back legs adapted for jumping up to 16 inches horizontally. These resilient pests have mouths that are designed for piercing skin and sucking blood.

Female fleas are larger than males and can lay hundreds of eggs. They go through egg, larva, pupa and adult stages. The larvae look like tiny worms.

Adult fleas live 2-3 months. In the pupal stage, they can survive months without feeding. They thrive in warm, humid environments between 70-85°F.

Flea bites can cause significant irritation, allergies and even tapeworms. An untreated infestation can quickly get out of hand.

Common Species

  • Cat Flea – Most common species found on cats and dogs.
  • Human Flea – Occasionally bites humans but cannot reproduce on them.
  • Rat Flea – Found on rodents but can bite humans. Can transmit plague.

Signs of Infestation

Excessive scratching, red bumps on skin, flea dirt (black specks), seeing live fleas jumping, eggs and larvae. You might find black specks in your pet’s fur. They may also have hotspots or hair loss from biting and scratching. Catching your pet excessively scratching or licking themselves, and realising bedding or furniture has small blood stains from crushed fleas. An inspection by a professional exterminator is the best way to confirm and locate infestations.
