Perth Cat Flea ( Ctenocephalides felis )

Cat Fleas shouldn’t be called cat fleas really, being the most common flea that infests both dogs & cats. This species is responsible for 87% of pest infestations in Perth & Western Australia. It’s very important to treat your pet for tapeworm at the same time as treating them for fleas. Combine this with Antipesto Pest Control Perth’s flea treatment and you will get rid of fleas properly.

Fleas are laterally compressed (like angel fish) and thin, enabling them to slip through pest hairs. They are also tiny (1-2mm) and hard to see. You can use a flea comb on your pets to check for red stains when cleaning the comb with a tissue. you may also find flea moults and tiny white eggs. They are black or dark brownish red in colour but can be hard to spot even on light coloured pets.

Do fleas live on humans?

Fleas do not live on us as we do not have the right amount of hair for them to live on. You may be getting bitten at night by bedbugs if you experiencing problems. At the worst fleas bite humans on shins, calves and ankles. Bedbugs will bite arms, torso and legs.
