Bed Bug Control

Is something crawling in your bed!

Early discovery is essential to prevent a bed bug infestation from getting out of control and spreading throughout your home or business.

Appearance: Bed bugs are small oval-shaped insects, generally about 5-7 mm in length, they have flat bodies and a reddish-brown colour. They could look bloated and redder after feeding.

Bedbugs feed on the blood of humans and prefer to hide in bedding and mattresses, where they have a readily available source of food. They are most often found in dwellings with a high rate of occupant turnover such as hotels and apartments.

Bed bugs can infest various areas within your home or business. Some common places where they are frequently found include:

  • Mattresses and box springs
  • Bed frames and headboards
  • Cracks and crevices in furniture
  • Curtains and drapes
  • Upholstered chairs and couches
  • Carpet edges and baseboards
  • Luggage and backpacks

Bed bug infestations are not always a symptom of poor hygiene because they might enter through a variety of channels, such as travel or worn furniture.

Living areas tend to have fewer bed insect hiding sites if they are regularly cleaned and decluttered. Bed bugs can be killed using high heat with specialised heating equipment. Washing and drying bed linen and clothing at 60 degrees or higher. Encasing your mattress can help keep bed bugs out of these items and make it simpler to spot and treat infestations.
When travelling, look for bed bug indicators like tiny reddish-brown insects, tiny white eggs, or dark faeces marks on bedding and furniture.

Bed bug bites can cause itching, redness, and skin irritation. Not everyone reacts the same way to bed bug bites, and some people may not display any apparent evidence of bites. Bed bug bites are frequently observed in clusters or in linear patterns on exposed body parts such as the arms, legs, neck, and face.

Methods of treatment may include:   
Combination of chemical and non-chemical treatments. Bedbugs can require intensive treatments to combat the infestation. More than one treatment is usually required. See our treatment tips to find out how to prepare for your treatment.

Flea Control

Get the jump on fleas! Treat now.

Fleas are a common problem in Australian homes, especially those with pets. Fleas are small, parasitic insects that belong to the order Siphonaptera. There are more than 90 species represented in Australia. Fleas are present all year, although they are most active in spring and summer.

Fleas are wingless biting insects that affect household cats, dogs, and other animals. Fleas have unique mouthparts that are intended for piercing their host’s skin and sucking blood. They can travel fast between hosts because to their strong, jumping-adapted rear legs.
Adult fleas range from 2 to 4 mm in length, are brown in colour and oval in shape. In most species, neither female nor male fleas are entirely grown when they emerge, and they must feed on blood before they can reproduce.

The Cat Flea (Ctenocephalides felis) and the Dog Flea (Ctenocephalides canis) are the two most prevalent.
The flea that is most frequently seen on both dogs and cats is the cat flea. It also affects people (typically on the lower legs) and can occasionally result in allergic responses.

  • Look for signs of crawling insects on your pet’s coat.
  • Carefully examine your pet’s skin for fine black droppings.
  • Flea bites are small and may results in an uncomfortable itch or rash.
  • Fleas can also be present when animals have lived in the property previously. Fleas are parasites, and an infestation could result in itchy bites that are uncomfortable and may result in a rash.


Methods of treatment may include:

Combination of chemical and non-chemical treatments. Fleas can require intensive blanket treatments to combat the infestation. See our treatment tips to find out how to prepare for your treatment.

One of our treatment strategies involves giving the entire home or place of business a “blanket” treatment on the carpets and flooring. If you have pets, you will also need to take care of the yard and their resting place.

We may ask you to vacuum your home prior to treatment and then the cleaner bag should then be discarded quickly to avoid the possibility of fleas spreading. Pet bedding should also be washed on the hot cycle of your washing machine, as fleas die at high temperatures. We also advise having your pet treated at the time of your service.

Pets are the main source of fleas in the home, there are some measures you can take to prevent infestations;

  • Have your animal treated for Fleas regularly
  • Vacuum regularly
  • Wash pet beds in HOT water
  • Use a flea comb on your pets regularly to catch fleas before they have a chance to lay eggs.
  • Bathe your pets regularly using a flea shampoo.
  • Consider using flea prevention products such as topical treatments or flea collars on your pets.
  • Keep your yard and outdoor spaces tidy by removing debris, trimming plants, and regularly mowing the lawn to reduce flea habitat.


Flea problems can affect your business, if not acted upon quickly. Fleas are particularly common in sectors that deal with animal management and care, such as Kennels and Veterinary Clinics. Speak to us about how we can tailor a solution to your business.

Why Should You Use Our Services for Flea Control?

Why Flea Treatment is Necessary for Your Home and Business?

Fleas may be a huge inconvenience in your home or place of business, especially if you live in a humid or temperate climate. Even though the majority of flea species are not dangerous to humans, it is essential to take measures to remove them.

Long-term time and resource savings can be achieved by investing in flea prevention. Since a single female flea may produce up to 50 eggs each day, a little issue can quickly develop into a serious infestation. Early prevention reduces the likelihood of later needing expensive and time-consuming intensive treatments.

It’s essential to address flea infestations promptly to prevent discomfort to pets and potential health risks to both animals and humans. If you suspect a flea infestation, it’s a good idea to consult with a veterinarian or pest control professional for effective treatment and prevention strategies.
