Fleas

Fleas are found right across Newcastle, they can make life very annoying for pets and their owners. Fleas are a blood feeding pest that can cause rashes, itchiness and in some cases can spread diseases such as typhus and even the Bubonic plague!

AdobeStock 230810750Fleas like to feed on warm blood and are commonly found on household pets like cats and dog, they can survive on your pet for long periods of time.

Size: from 1.5 – 4mm
Colour: Brown coloured body that is oval shaped from the side and flat from the top. This allows for ease of movement in and around hair follicles
Fleas can travel from pet to pet as they can leap a considerable distance for their size.
Fleas prefer warmer weather with most flea infestations in spring and summer

Fleas will remain on your pet (host), from which they obtain their food source, they can also survive for months without food and it’s quite common for areas around pet activity (such as household carpets, lawns and gardens) to remain flea infested long after a pet has left the property

- Matt Allison

Testimonials

He’s always been open and honest and we trust him. What you see is what you get. You can tell just by speaking to him that he was an honest fella. So I decided to ask him to do it then and there. I didn’t even know the price yet.

Testimonials

I just had a termite chemical barrier put in place. Shane called around promptly to assess the site and quote. He kept me informed on when he could do the job and what was involved and arrived on time to get it done. Price was good and I found Shane to be very professional, friendly and courteous.

Testimonials

I've dealt with a lot of pest companies in the past. Some large organisations and some sole traders. I found them (Perimeter) easier to deal with, faster to respond. In that regard, it made more sense for me to work with them. I asked for quotes from some larger organisations and they didn’t even provide the quote on time.

Testimonials

- Nason Aylmer

Testimonials

From my wife's perspective, as a woman, they were very respectful and informative. They fill her in on everything and don’t treat her like "well you’re just a woman, who cares, and ring me". They leave her with all the information verbally and she tells me when I come home from work. It’s a major plus.

Testimonials

Anytime I've asked about anything that’s come up. He's been happy to come out and help me with it, talk me through the options and come up with a plan.
