Fleas are small, very specialised parasitic insects that belong to Order Siphonaptera. This insect order has some 2380 species known worldwide and only about 90 species represented in Australia. Adult fleas are bloodsuckers, the majority feeding on mammals (e.g. dogs, cats, pigs) and some feeding on birds.

Some flea species are very widespread and as a result of their biting habit, which may cause severe irritation, and their role in disease transmission, the group has justly earned a reputation of being extremely important in the medical and public health context. When conditions favour flea growth and development, populations can be so great that references to a ‘flea plague’ are not uncommon. The interactions between flea populations and humans and their animals can be quite complex. In some instances, control may be difficult to achieve without the assistance and co-operation of the occupants of the building concerned.
Fleas control - Get rid of fleas Fleas
A sound understanding of the biology of fleas is an important prerequisite to effective control. Adult fleas are small (1.5-4.0 mm long), usually brownish, strongly sclerotized, laterally compressed (facilitating fast movement through dense hair or fur), and equipped with piercing and sucking mouthparts. In the course of insect evolution, it appears that fleas have become wingless (again, a condition that suits their parasitic lifestyle). Their well-developed hindlegs facilitate very powerful jumping, and claws on their legs ensure that they grapple onto the host animal. Some species have a transverse row of spines above the mouthparts, called the genal comb. The pronotal comb, when present, is a row of transverse spines on the pronotum. Such structures can be important in flea identification.
Flea larvae are small, legless and worm-like with short antennae; manipulate mouthparts and rigid hairs along the body

I called Allrid pest services about a issue with rodents i have been having at my warehouse. Andrew the technician that had come out was very professional in his work and explained what needed to be done. He was very through and checked all around the warehouse to see possible entry points. He had baited and proofed the entry points. It has now been a month and i haven't spotted a rodent in site. Thank you for great work. more

Andrew from Allrid is very professional and extremely effective. After one visit, I didn't see any roaches for almost 2 years. I called him in again to nuke the tiny number of roaches that have very recently started darting in and out of the usual places. PS. His perfect score almost looks too good to be true but I promise that I wasn't given any discounts or extra incentives for this more
