Fleas are tiny wingless parasite about the size of a dot. They measure 1mm to 2.5mm in length with yellowish to dark brown in colour. Some fleas may appear flattened; this is because they have not fed yet. Fleas who have been feeding appear engorged in the belly. Fleas have six legs like most insects and divided into 3 body parts: the head, thorax and abdomen.
Fleas feed on warm-blooded vertebrates, because fleas have no wings to fly, their well developed back legs allows them to jump through the air from one host to another and also allows them to propel into the animals fur at a high speed to avoid the animals teeth and claw when the animal starts to scratch. Life cycle of a flea begins after a female flea lays eggs on the host. A female flea can lay 20 batches of eggs; it takes the eggs two weeks to hatch.
To successfully eradicate flea infestation in your home, start with your pet, the fleas main food source. After treating your pet, Pest-Ex will then apply a pesticide across all floor areas of your home. This treatment is safe for humans and pets but not on fleas. This treatment will not only kill fleas but will leave a residue for the flea eggs when they hatch they will instantly be affected, resulting in 100% eradication. In heavy flea infestations, we re-spray 2 weeks after the first service.
