Real Estate Strata Pest Control for fleas and ticks in North Western Sydney
Do you have a flea or tick problem or infestation in your Real Estate Strata property or premises?
EVO Pest Control can safely and effectively rid your Real Estate Strata property or premises of fleas and ticks.
The most common sources of flea and tick infestations in a Real Estate Strata property or premises are household pets. Even if pets are not in residence at the Real Estate Strata complex, fleas and ticks can be present from passing native and domestic animals, which may shed or pick up fleas and ticks from grass, trees and garden beds.
Fleas and ticks can cause health problems ranging from allergic reactions to serious illnesses. Both fleas and ticks are more common during the warmer months.
Fleas are small insects ranging from 1-4 millimetres in length. The female adult flea lays up to 500 eggs per day, and the resultant larvae burrow into carpet, soft furnishings or small crevices, making treatment difficult. Once hatched, the adult flea jumps onto a passing animal and starts the life cycle all over again.
There are two main types of fleas common in Australia, the Dog Flea and the Cat Flea.
The Dog Flea feeds on the blood of dogs and cats, and they occasionally bite humans. It is also a carrier of the Dog Tapeworm, which can also affect humans. Dog Fleas are brownish black in colour, but may appear reddish-black after feeding. Adult Dog Fleas are 1-4 millimetres long.

Cat Fleas are brownish and around 3 millimetres long. Cat Fleas are actually wingless ticks, flattened from side to side with long legs enabling them to jump.

Ticks, whilst not generally able to infest homes, are prevalent in bushland and grassed areas, and are able to jump onto domestic or native animals, where they attach and bite, drawing blood though powerful pincers. Ticks carry many disease-causing bacteria, and can transmit diseases to animals and people.
There are three main types of ticks common in Australian households, the Paralysis Tick, the Brown Dog Tick and the Bush Tick.
The Paralysis Tick ranges in colour from pale grey to dark blue-grey as an infant, and yellow-grey as an adult. It has a pear-shaped body and long snout.

The Brown Dog Tick is reddish-brown in colour, with an oval shaped body and a very long snout.

The Bush Tick has dark red-to-brown coloured legs and a brown to dark blue-grey body. It has an oval shaped body and a short snout.

How can you tell if you have a flea or tick infestation in your Real Estate Strata property or premises?
Flea infestations are apparent upon sightings of the insects themselves, bites suffered by humans or pets, and domestic animals scratching. Residents may also find they suffer flea bites whilst gardening, or may find carpets infested after a period of non-occupation (ie: following a holiday or during a period of vacancy), when the insects are able to breed undisturbed.
How to keep fleas and ticks under control in your Real Estate Strata property or premises
Prevention is the most important aspect of flea control. Because 95 percent of the problem is in the environment, once it has been established, a flea infestation generally requires professional treatment to get it under control.
You can help to prevent a flea infestation in your Real Estate Strata property or premises in a few ways:
- If animals are allowed in the Real Estate Strata complex, advise pet owners to use the best quality flea treatment on any household pets and remain up to date with applications, and to wash pet bedding often in hot water.
- Residents should vacuum homes and soft furnishings regularly.
- Other native wildlife can carry fleas, so keep these away from the premises where possible, and obtain prompt treatment for any wildlife or pest infestation.
- Advise residents to check hair, clothing and shoes after walking through long grass or bushland.
- As fleas and ticks can also colonise in long grass, keep lawns trimmed and avoid allowing domestic pets to walk through long grass.
If you find a tick on your pet, seek veterinary assistance without delay.
