Perhaps you’ve just moved into a new home, and the previous owners had pets. Before you move your stuff in, it’s worth having it inspected for fleas first.

Or maybe you regularly de-flea your pets, but in no time they start scratching again. They could be carrying them in from your backyard.

Apart from the visible signs of fleas when your cats or dogs scratch, even without pets you may also have tiny, red and itchy bites because fleas feast on humans too.

Flea infestations in the home can be a persistent problem, especially with the Gold Coast’s subtropical climate. Fleas are a common problem here, and the warmer seasons always see an increase in infestations.

Why is it hard to control fleas?

Treating your pets without treating the areas where they pick the fleas up isn’t a long-term solution. If your home is carpeted, it can be hard to get rid of them. If you walk around your house in a pair of white socks, you may spot the tell-tale signs of little black dots on them. Outside areas may be harder to inspect.

Fleas can hide in carpets, rugs, pets bedding, furniture upholstery, under outside patios or trees and bushes in your backyard, especially where leaf debris tends to collect. If the flea is in the egg or cocoon stage, it is protected from home remedy treatments or flea bombs.
