Flea Types

A common urban myth is that there are “sand fleas” and “grass fleas.” All fleas live off hosts and could not survive just living in grass or sand without a host. The real culprits are cat fleas lying in these places after their pet has shaken off onto the ground.

The best way to get rid of fleas is to regularly wash your pets in a safe, residual shampoo for the best flea control service results. Regular vacuuming flea-infested areas can help, but you will need to call a professional in most cases of heavy infestations.

If these nasty, itching pests are a problem for you, please call Steam ‘n’ Dry Flea Control Auckland Service experts on 0800 783-266, or fill out the form for a free quote and advice about fleas and Pest Control Auckland Services.

Fleas are jumping insects without any wings. They have a flattened body, with hooks on their hairy legs so that they can slip through and grip onto their human and animal hosts. Their powerful hind legs have resilin which is like rubber in their joints.

All they have to do to get around is compress these legs and quickly release them. Using this method, they can jump up to 20 cm and up to 35 cm horizontally.

A person with the same jumping power could jump on top of Ayres Rock!

Flea Control Life Cycle

Female fleas may lay up to around 25 eggs daily and have over 800 offspring in a lifetime. Their eggs will hatch between five and fourteen days and then become larvae. The larvae are blind and also legless. They feed upon dried blood from the host and other organic matter, such as dried skin. After another two to three weeks, the larvae will be fully grown and will then become pupae.

Whenever vibrations or even heat are sensed, the pupa will emerge as an adult and begin biting and feeding off the host. Indeed, maybe two or three weeks, or in rare cases over a year. Therefore, it is why after you return from the holidays and enter your home, you are suddenly bitten by large amounts of fleas. Sound familiar?

Fleas are initially controlled by shampooing your pet with a safe, residual insecticide. Then, your vet may recommend a very safe insecticide called Pyrethrin, but this will only last a day.

The shampoos we recommend contain “Permethrin”, which are technically called a synthetic pyrethroid. Of course, they will last a lot longer. At the same time, they aren’t as dangerous and smelly as are other Organo-phosphates.

Preparations for the Flea Control Treatment

  • Firstly, remove all children and pets from the areas about to be sprayed.
  • To get the maximum benefit of the treatment, remove all objects from the floor and lawn areas.
  • We cannot spray long grass, as it will not get to the ground area requiring treatment. Mow lawns and those dry areas to get the eggs to the surface. Thus, it will also help keep the evaporating effect of the insecticide down.
  • Then vacuum all floor areas and carpet, especially skirting boards and under furniture and cushions. Vacuum bags can be discarded or sprayed with simple fly spray to kill any adult fleas captured within the container.
  • Of course, block off areas from entry by pets. This is vital for long-term protection. We cannot flood the site to get to where they are breeding, as the amount of pesticide needed would be dangerous to your pet and yourself. So the answer to permanent flea relief is to block entry permanently so that your pet cannot enter. I’m afraid that is the only way. Otherwise, it will be an endless cycle of fleas killed outside and picked up again when your pet goes underneath your house.
  • Also, the bedding of your pets is to be thoroughly washed or thrown away before treatment.
  • An Insect Growth Regulator or I.G.R. may also be used tablets for your pet’s food. You can get I.G.R.s from your vet. Common trade names are called “Programme” or “Pro-ban.”
  • After Steam ‘n’ Dry Flea Control Auckland Service expert treatment, your pet should be rewashed as soon as possible after the therapy with shampoo or residual flea powder.

Flea Elimination Process

Preparation for Flea Treatment

Initially, remove all items from the floor (e.g. toys, clothes, pet food). You can also wash or replace the pet beddings for better cleaning. As frequent as possible, vacuum the carpets and areas beneath beds and furniture. Likewise, clean all the floors by sweeping and mopping. Also, include concrete floors with soap and water. If possible, place all the pets away from the area. Furthermore, make all outdoor shaded areas and crawlspaces available for treatment. Bear in mind that it’s best to leave home for hours while the flea treatment has time to dry.

Treatment of Pets

• Pets should be flea treated at the same time a home is. Pet treatment should always take place under the direction of a veterinarian.
