Fleas

Flea is the common name given to the wingless insects of the order Siphonaptera. Fleas feed on the blood of mammals and birds and can transmit serious diseases such as typhus or bubonic plague.

Usually, affect more pets. In addition to annoying by the bites, they transmit worms, parasites and can induce allergic processes. The female flea lays its eggs (white 0.5mm long) on ​​the animal and, as they do not settle, they fall into the environment where they only depend on temperature and humidity to hatch into larvae, within a period of up to 10 days. These remain in carpets, blankets and floor cracks, feed on organic debris and adult flea droppings. In 5 to 11 days they form a cocoon where the pupa form occurs.

At 27ºC and 80% ambient humidity, they can become adult fleas in just 5 days. For this reason, rapid disinfestation is essential for its control.

FAQ

What is a pest?

Pests cause various epidemic diseases to humans and even animals.

How can I know if I have an infestation at my office?

There is often a pest in your home, without it being easily detectable. Many species hide or protect themselves when they sense the human presence, manifesting when we are not there.

Why is it so important to have year-round pest control monitoring?

A very common mistake when talking about pests is to believe that the warmer seasons are the only times of the year when they pose a threat. This is not true, many pest species pose a year-round threat. What does exist is a change in behavior from one season to another, which does not mean that protective measures are less necessary. It is important to have pest control during the four seasons of the year so that your safety is always assured.
