How we Treat


Have you ever wondered why an inspection is so important? Fleas, for example, can cause a lot of damage. They can spread germs and diseases like tapeworm larvae in a short period. This is why you must carry out a professional pest inspection to detect their presence.

Here at Eco pest control Melbourne, our professionals will inspect your property thoroughly both inside and out for signs of infestation by paying special attention to eaves and fissures. After that, the experienced technician will discuss the problem with you and give you a recommendation.


After inspection, we will treat every part of your property. To do this, we will spray all sensitive areas like skirting boards, under and around furniture, and even grassed and garden beds. Rest assured, our chemicals won’t hurt your children or pets.


Pets are at the greatest risk of flea infestation. They are also the most likely transmitters to humans. Apart from house pets, raccoons and certain animals can spread fleas. Maintaining pets on a preventive treatment schedule of medications is the best approach to avoid subsequent house infestations. Depending on the location, the period could be seasonal or year-round. This way, you can destroy stray fleas picked up by pets before they can lay eggs.

Regularly comb your pets and bath them with effective flea treatments. Also, regularly vacuum your floor to remove female fleas and the dirt they use as a disguise. Mow your lawn, keep your yard clean or tall weed and grasses, and you will have a better chance of keeping them off your property.

Why Fleas Are Considered Pests

They are tiny, flightless parasites that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals. The cat flea is the most popular species that feed on cats, dogs, and humans. These biting pests are also introduced into a home by raccoons or skunks. When fleas infest pets, they experience hair loss, irritation, scratching, red rashes, allergic reactions among many other symptoms. You may also find tiny black specks spread throughout pet beds, carpeted floors, and rugs, which are typically flea faeces.

Beside pets, fleas can bite humans.

Development of flea: Egg, larva, pupal stage, and adult fleas. Depending on the temperature, humidity, food, and the species, this life cycle can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 months.
