Pest Control – How to Get Rid of Dog or Cat Fleas and Ticks

Cat Fleas and Ticks

Part of living on the Gold Coast means dealing with Fleas and Ticks, especially the evil Paralysis Tick.

Daily checks of your animal are advised to check for ticks or fleas. Look for changes in breathing, their ability to walk and vomiting. While supermarket and vet treatments can help assist the local environment and your pet, it’s easy to miss a breeding ground, leading to another round of illness.

While all pet owners must treat their dogs and cats coats with a preventative flea and tick treatment, All Aspects Pest Control support your efforts to keep your feline and canine friends safe.

How to Treat Your Home for Animal Ticks

Ticks are hard to spot and can be deadly. Tracking down all their breeding places can be very difficult for a pet owner.

  • Ticks are more prevalent at this time of year as the heat and humidity rises
  • Ticks measure as little as 3-5mm; they are tiny and often hard to see
  • the paralysis tick can cause severe illness and death to dogs and cats
  • types of ticks: brown dog, bush ticks, paralysis ticks

Having a licensed Pest Controller in to spray your yard for ticks can help to minimise the chance of being affected by ticks and will support any other preventative treatment.

At All Aspects Pest Control, we spray a light mist along fence lines and in grass and garden areas. We focus also on spots your pet loves to go – under the house or in their kennel.

Pet Safety After Tick Treatment

Your dog or cat is free to roam as soon as the spray is dry; usually within 40 mins of it being applied.  At All Aspects Pest Control, we tailor the treatment specifically for ticks. It’s a specific mixture that works in addition to a general pest control treatment.

Preventing Flea Infestations

It’s hard to get rid of fleas as re-infestation is common especially with supermarket or vet remedies. Flea bombs are only half the solution.

  • A trip to the dog park can bring these pests back to your home
  • Fleas jump from one animal or habitat to another
  • Home treatments such as ‘flea bombs’ may kill only adult fleas
  • Larvae and eggs can lay dormant in rugs and carpets after home treatments

How to Treat Your Home for Dog or Cat Fleas

A professional flea treatment kills the eggs and larvae as well as the adult fleas. Renters with animals must get a professional flea treatment done on exit of their property, so don’t forget to include this if you’re thinking of moving homes.

All Aspects Pest Control will help you minimise your flea problems with an ultra-fine spray of carpets, rugs and indoor areas. Combined with an outdoor tick treatment you can relax knowing your pets are safe and comfortable and your house is pest-free.

If you need to look after your dog or cat and suspect ticks or fleas, we are here to help. Call All Aspects Pest Control to book your Flea and Tick treatment today.
