Fleas & Ticks

Fleas & Ticks

Flea populations can build up rapidly, with female fleas laying hundreds of eggs which reach maturity in a couple of weeks time.In Spring and Summer the fleas life cycle can be as short as 21 days.

Successful management of these pests depends on a variety of factors including extensive knowledge of flea biology and habits, skilled inspection techniques, informed pesticide selection and careful application methods.

Very effective products including Insect Growth Regulators (IGR’s) of low toxicity to mammals are available for application by your Northern Rivers accredited Pest Control Technicians.

Application to flea harbourage areas, particularly the areas where pets rest or sleep, will eliminate flea populations.

To reduce the risk of re-infestation, pet bedding should be washed or replaced and pets treated with an appropriate product on the advice of your veterinarian.

Ticks are a serious problem in the Northern rivers, the small grass tick, the medium sized bush tick and the large paralysis ticks are all one in the same just at different developmental stages of their life cycle.

Ticks can be present in plague proportions and are life threatening if left undetected on your pets.

Ticks have also been associated with Lymes disease in people here in Australia.

Northern Rivers Pest Control have developed effective tick control methods during our many years in the Pest Control Industry utilising specific low odour insecticides with a low mamalian toxicity so you can have peace of mind when you treat your residence for these nasty pests.
