Fleas on the Central Coast are a tiny pest that can cause big problems.

Fleas are a common issue on the Central Coast. These jumping bugs can be found in homes, hotels, offices, and even on public transit. Unfortunately, they are one of the most difficult pests to exterminate alone.

At Central Coast Pest Exterminators, we’ve seen an increase in flea populations across the region. Fleas are a common problem on the Central Coast due to the large number of wild and domesticated animals in the area. As a result, homes and businesses in the area need to be vigilant to prevent flea infestations.

Central Coast Pest Exterminators provide comprehensive flea control services to exterminate pests from your home or business.

How to Spot Fleas

Fleas are tiny, wingless insects that feed on the blood of animals. While they can jump long distances, they also travel by running. They are dark brown or black and have a hard, shiny body. They also have long hind legs that they use to jump.

An adult flea grows from 0.1 to 0.32 cm long. Nymphs, or baby fleas, are much smaller and are light brown in colour. Both adults and nymphs have piercing mouthparts that they use to puncture the skin and suck the blood of their host.

Fleas are often found in areas where animals sleep or rest. This is because they need a warm environment to survive. They can also be found in carpets, upholstered furniture, and cracks in floors and walls. Because they thrive in warm environments, they are more common during the summer months.

Spotting fleas in your home can be tricky since they are so small. However, there are a few signs that you can look for that may indicate their presence.

These include:

  • Find dirt or black specks on the floor/furniture.
  • Bites on your skin.
  • Pet scratching or biting more than usual.

If you think you have fleas in your home, the best thing to do is call us. We will be able to identify the problem and devise a plan to get rid of them. Central Coast Pest Exterminators has years of experience dealing with flea infestations.
