The following flea information is a homeowner guide to educate consumers about flea identification, reproduction, habitat, flea control, and reducing the chances of getting fleas in the house. Fleas have been an issue presenting itself to humanity since the beginning of time. Fleas are highly specialised blood-sucking parasites that generally are present at home by cats and dogs.
Fleas are light brown to mahogany in colour and roughly oval-shaped. Their laterally flattened appearance allows them to move quickly. Fleas are 2-8 mm in length. They have a small head with sawing and sucking mouthparts and two tiny eyes. Both the male and female rely on blood for their nutrition but can survive for several months without it.
Fleas have a four-stage life cycle.
4. Flea adults
The complete life cycle from flea eggs to flea adults can vary from two weeks to eight months.
Female fleas use the blood to nourish developing eggs; they will lay up to 4 eggs after each blood meal. Most female fleas will lay 100 eggs within her life of approximately eight months. The flea eggs are oval, white to cream in colour and measure 0.5 mm in length. The flea eggs hatch when they vibrate from animal or human disturbance.
Fleas are likely to be found where pets feed, rest and play. From late December to late February, I don’t take my dog to the park because of all the fleas evident at the park. It’s the peak of the flea season. Prolonged periods of warm, humid weather in the summer months provide ideal conditions for fleas to flourish.
The micro post requires Flea Control service clients to carry out a few simple actions before we come around and flea controls their house(s) or building.
Flea Control service utilises a treatment called synthetic Pyrethrins when carrying out a flea control treatment. Has a residual life of approximately three to 12 months—a water-based flea control product.
It treats all the external areas such as gardens and lawns and then all the house or building’s internal floor areas. It can take up to nine days to control fleas because they are impervious to any treatments and must hatch before eliminating the fleas. When the flea egg hatches, it lands on a treated service and picks up some Cislin on its legs, and when it grooms itself, it injects the pyrethrum.

Even though there are more than 70 species known in Auckland, very few are essential to man. The human flea and cat flea are the only ones we usually encounter.
Fleas are notorious vectors of disease, notably plague, but this disease has not occurred in Auckland for over 50 years. The vital vector of plague is the rat flea which seldom attacks humans unless rat populations diminish rapidly due to control or disease. Although not joint, another disease transmitted by rat fleas, murine, or endemic typhus occurs in New Zealand. Certain intestinal worm parasites of dogs and cats can be transferred to humans by fleas, but as in this case, the infected flea has to be swallowed. This method of infection is not shared. On the other hand, fleas are a common nuisance to humans because of their blood-sucking activities. Persistent attacks on children are one of the causes of papular urticaria of childhood, and the simple reason – flea-bites – is quite often overlooked.
