THE FLEA LIFECYCLE DIAGRAM
FLEA EXTERMINATOR AUCKLAND - WHAT IS MY PEST?
Pest control Auckland fleas, requires a good plan! Fleas belong to order the Siphonaptera and are all blood suckers. Fleas transfer disease and are famous for killing thousands of humans historically. Fleas live naturally outside in the grass.
Fleas can live in a home or business WITHOUT a pet such as cat or dog.
HOW A FLEA TREATMENT WORKS
Often the first thing customers show us are empty flea bombs. They tell us that the fleas went away then came back. They then ask what is a flea exterminator going to do that's different? We explain that your flea bomb did actually kill all your fleas, but didn't TAKE OUT the cocoon part of the flea life cycle.
Please see our diagram to left of the page.
Our treatment for fleas is different from a flea bomb by
- Having a Professional grade insecticide.
- Adding in an Insect growth regulator (IGR). This stops the fleas from being able to grow. This is how we treat the fleas in the cocoons. When they hatch and try to grow they perish, breaking the cycle.
- Focusing our treatments in the area where the "host" sleeps. This is where the life cycle of the flea occurs.
FLEA BOMB TREATMENT-HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Our flea treatments spray the floor surfaces with particular attention to the areas where the "host (s) " sleep. This often means spraying around and under beds. Please note we do not treat beds, linen or the customers clothing. A customer can treat their linen by doing a hot wash and hot dry with their sheets. A flea treatment is quick and commonly takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
IS PEST CONTROL AUCKLAND SAFE?
Customers ask are our treatments child safe, baby safe, dog safe and cat safe? Our treatments for fleas are very low toxicity to humans, children, cats and dogs. We use our flea treatments in a safe method.

ARE DIY FLEA BOMBS EFFECTIVE?
DIY flea bombs have a number of reasons they don't work. Firstly the home DIYer doesn't have the experience or gear to complete an effective spray treatment. Secondly there's no DIY product that treats the cocoon stage of the flea life cycle. Thirdly the EPA restricts the dosage of DIY products to ineffective levels and also restricts the sale of the most effective chemicals to the public.
