    Amazing Flea Control Melbourne Because Your Children, family and Pets Deserve Better

    Fleas may come from anywhere; even from your garden. They search for warm-blooded animals to feast upon. The most common fleas are Dog Fleas and Cat fleas. While the Cat Fleas may infect cats, dogs and a few other animals but the Dog Fleas will look for dogs and rabbits only.

    Dogs are usually targeted at their hind portion of the body while cats are targeted around the neck and head.

    Look for larvae, pupae and eggs in your garden and all the places your pet leaves its mark.

    Look for flea droppings, which may be red or black, on carpets and sitting areas. If you find small dirt-like particles, collect those with a wet tissue and observe if there are rings of blood.

    Get into combating the problem immediately once you recognize a flea infestation. Removing a flea infestation isn’t an easy task. It becomes challenging as the adult fleas are very small in size and can survive without eating for days.

    Prevention from fleas with Flea Control Melbourne

    Below are a few ways to prevent flea infestation:

    Vacuuming rooms, carpets, cracks, crevices, and furniture with upholstery
    Kill fleas and bugs alike by creating a temperature of 50-degree centigrade or above in places where they breed. Clean your pet’s fur with a comb and consult a vet regularly
    While disposing of the vacuum packet, ensure you do it outside and away from your home. It’s best to incinerate it without opening.
    Keep the fur of your pets clean, well-groomed and trimmed
    You can mix apple cider vinegar with water and spray on the flea-infested fur of your pet. This will make the pests jump off
