What are the most common Fleas found on New Zealand properties?

Fleas are a common problem in New Zealand properties and can be found both inside and outside. There are several types of fleas that you may encounter, including dog fleas, cat fleas, human fleas, and rat fleas. Each type of flea can bring its own unique set of issues.

  • Dog fleas are a common parasite found on dogs and can quickly infest a property. They are capable of spreading diseases and causing itching and discomfort for both pets and humans.
  • Cat fleas are similarly a problem for cats, but can also infest other animals and humans. They are known for causing intense itching and discomfort.
  • Human fleas are a type of flea that typically infests humans and are more likely to be found in rural areas. They are capable of spreading diseases such as flea-borne typhus, plague, or cat scratch disease.
  • Rat fleas are a type of flea that typically infests rats but can also infest humans. They are capable of spreading diseases such as murine typhus, plague, and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.

It’s important to identify the type of flea infesting your property in order to effectively eliminate them. By working with a professional pest control service, you can ensure a flea-free environment for you and your family or employees.

What damage can Fleas cause if left unchecked?

Fleas can cause a range of issues for properties and those who occupy them.

  • These tiny pests feed on the blood of animals and humans, causing itching and discomfort.
  • Fleas can also infest pets and lead to a cycle of re-infestation.
  • In addition to being a nuisance, if you accidentally swallow a tapeworm-infected flea, you can get tapeworms.
  • Fleas reproduce quickly, making them difficult to eliminate once they have taken hold.

An unchecked flea infestation can lead to significant damage to properties and affect the health and well-being of those who occupy them. That’s why it’s important to act quickly and work with a professional pest control service to eliminate fleas from your property.

What can I do to keep Fleas at bay?

Want to keep fleas at bay and protect your home from their itchy bites? Here are a few tips that can help:

  • Give your home a deep clean – Regular vacuuming is a must, especially in carpets and upholstery where fleas love to lay their eggs.
  • Give Fido and Fluffy some TLC – Keeping your pets flea-free is a big part of the battle, so make sure they’re up to date on their flea treatments.
  • Keep the outside tidy – Fleas love tall grass and overgrown gardens, so keep your yard trimmed and neat to make it less inviting to them.
  • Watch for sneaky invaders – Tiny cracks and crevices can be a gateway for fleas, so take some time to seal up any you find around your home.
  • Wash pet bedding often – This is an easy one! Just throw Fido’s bed in the wash every so often and you’ll be good to go.

By following these simple steps, you can have peace of mind knowing you’re doing everything you can to keep fleas out of your home. Happy cleaning!

Where can Fleas be found on my property?

Fleas are sneaky little creatures that can hide in many places.


Inside your home, they like to hide in carpets, upholstery, pet bedding, and any other cozy nooks and crannies.


Outside, they can be found in tall grass, bushes, and any other areas where animals like to rest.


But don’t worry, with a little bit of vigilance, you can keep these pests under control. Regular vacuuming, proper pet grooming, and maintaining a tidy yard can go a long way in keeping fleas out of your home.
