Fleas - North Brisbane Pest Control

Fleas are a type of wingless parasite found worldwide. They feed off the blood of humans and animals such as dogs and cats.

They are most notorious for transmitting bubonic plague from wild rodents to humans within certain parts of the world (not Australia).

There are three main species of flea that infest humans:

Spiders

Spiders are members of the class Arachnida. Other members include ticks, mites and scorpions. Generally, spiders have eight legs, two-part bodies, fangs, and organs that spin webs. Spiders are essential to our ecosystem as they prey on insects and keep their populations under control.

Australia has about 2,000 species of spider but most are relatively harmless to humans. Funnel-web spiders (indigenous to Sydney) and red-back spiders (found throughout the country) are perhaps the most venomous spiders in Australia.

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that mostly feed on dead plant material generally in the form of wood, leaf litter and soil. There are estimates of 4,000 different species while only 10% of these are known as pests which cause structural damage to buildings, crops and or other plantations.

Termites thrive in tropical locations making Australia a key target for termites to live and thrive in.
