RENTAL PROPERTY FLEA FUMIGATION & TREATMENTS – See our check list of great tips at the end of this article
How to detect fleas in your yard:
1. Wear white socks and tuck in your trousers if wearing long pants
2. Walk for 10 minutes around all the areas that your dog or cat likes to go
3. Fleas will sense your presence through vibrations and hitch a free ride.
4. Take note of where the main activity seems to be and let your pest technician know where you have sighted the live fleas jumping onto you. The above video is what they look like on your socks:
If you are a tenant and have a pet such as a dog or a cat during your tenancy, chances are that you’ll be asked for proof that you’ve had a treatment against fleas at the end of your tenancy lease agreement.
Special conditions on your lease may demand this once your lease has expired.
If you don’t arrange this yourself, a more costly treatment may be deducted from your bond.
Sprays may be requested for internal only, external only or both. Expect the treatment to take 20-30 minutes on average.
How much does it cost for a Flea Spray?
End of lease flea treatment prices range from as little as $85 up to $165, depending on the property. Expect to pay around $250 for an average price from other pest control firms to fumigate.
I know that it is annoying if you know that you haven’t got fleas, but you still have to have it done as part of your rental agreement.
See Typical Agent’s Clause Regarding Pet Fumigation:

How To Prevent Fleas on Your Dog or Cat
Are you confused about which treatments are safest for your pets? This is the medical advice that I received from a client of ours that is an experienced veterinarian. This is strictly a guide only. Please visit your own veterinarian for your pet’s best treatments and protection.
Dogs Cats Administer “Nexgard Spectra” Orally – will last for a month. Use Bravecto Oral + topical – will last for 3-6 months. Or you can use Comfortis Plus. Has been around for a while buty still effective. Give orally once a month. Administer “Advocate” once monthly and Bravecto topically. Will give your cat 3 months protection The above treatments are adulticides so they need to be used in conjunction with IGR (Insect Growth Regulators)
Cats have been known to be poisoned after being administered incorrect flea treatments that were meant for dogs. If your cat has been given the wrong treatment it may cause hyper-excitability, shaking, convulsions, and even death.
Even benig exposured to dogs treated with permethrin may cause convulsion, hyper-salivation, and loss of coordination. Get immediate treatment by a veterinarian if any of these symptoms occur. This feline intolerance is due to cat’s glucuronosyltransferase, an enzyme that also causes cats to be intolerant to paracetamol.

FACTS ABOUT FLEAS
Fleas are found in humid surroundings & climates. They suck blood from the host animal which are usually cats, dogs & human beings.
The four stages of the flea life-cycle are:
Female fleas can lay approximately 50 eggs every day, which works out to be 500-600 eggs over several months. It may consume over 15 times it’s body volume in blood everyday.
Ten fleas (5 males 5 females) can potentially reproduce over 250,000 offspring in one month.
In some cases you can expect to still see some fleas within the environment for around 6 weeks while the spray takes effect. We use an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) to help speed up this process.

List of Moving Tips
1. Take photos of what it looks like once you are finished. Take an inventory of what’s left behind. That will include and pre-existing marks on the walls, floors, ceilings, taps and sinks, shower, bath, toilet, windows, carpets, curtains and similar. Hopefully you will be able to match them with photos that you took when you first moved in
2. Remove nails and posters. If the hole made by the nail or hanger is a small one, just press a little spackle over the area and smooth it over with your finger or with a putty knife. If the hole is larger, fill the opening will crunched up newspaper so that you fill the space without protruding beyond the opening. Then apply the spackle and smooth over it with the putty knife. Let the Spackle dry completely before you doing anything else.
Once it’s dry, you’ll probably need to sand the area a bit so it will blend with the surrounding area. And now comes the hard part: you need to match the paint. You don’t need to paint the whole room. You just need to cover the parts of the wall that have been damaged by the holes you made.
3. Clean everything that you can as much as possible.
Easy Off Bam cleaner is the best product to use. You will need to leave it for about 4-6 hours and then stains will wash off immediately with very little further effort from you. This is what to use if you want to get it REALLY clean. An added feature is that its not overpowering, but leaves a pleasing smell.
4. Clean all carpets with a DYI solution like Britex.
It costs $39.90 for 24 hours or only $49.00 for 48 hours. Find a store to hire them from here: http://www.britex.com/store-locator

It is now well accepted that tenants are responsible for flea treatments where animals have been on the premises, even if dogs and cats have been kept in the yards outside.
In NSW Law, Section 103 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1994 clearly sets out the lessor’s responsibilities in respect of the property.
The main obligation of the landlord, is to make sure that the property is clean & fit to live in.
If infestations of cockroaches, spiders, rats, fleas be d bugs or other pest exists, it follows that the Landlord has the responsibility making sure that no infestations are existing at the start of the lease. Get a free quote from us today.
Flea larvae are small, legless and worm-like with short antennae, mandibulate mouth-parts and rigid hairs along the body.
Insects can slow and almost halt their growth and development at various stages in order to make the most of more favourable conditions when they occur.
– Cat Flea (Ctenocephalides felis) This is perhaps the most common pest flea in many regions. In addition to cats, it is known to attack dogs, rats, humans and other mammals.
– Dog Flea (Ctenocephalides canis) This is very similar in appearance to the cat flea, but seems to be less commonly encountered. It also attacks a wide range of mammals.
– Human Flea (Pulex irritans) This is becoming much less associated with humans since the advent of the vacuum cleaner and other aids to better housekeeping. It also attacks dogs, pigs, rats and mice. It is often encountered in piggeries.
– Oriental Rat Flea (Xenopsylla cheopsi) Favoured host is the rat. This is the principal vector of bubonic plague and murine typhus.
– Arranging treatment of pets (for adult flea control)
– Advising thorough vacuuming and cleaning
– Applying insecticides carefully , aiming at all the possible habitats that larvae or other stages may infest.
– Advising the occupants of the importance of regular attention to pets and the importance of cleanliness in the home.

Tenants’ information guide to pets and renting in NSW
This info guide will examine the various legal situations for persons who rent in NSW and some common questions pet owners who are renting have regarding keeping pets such as cats and dogs. Pet owners also have responsibilities for pets and also council obligations on both owners & renters.
Am I allowed to keep pets?
There is nothing in the act that prevents you from having pets, or having to ask your landlord for consent for keeping pets. Some landlords might have a clause restricting restricting pets in the agreement, and there nothing preventing them at the moment from them doing so.
Under the New South Wales Fair Trading wording you need to have consent from your landlord to keep animals.
Many strata schemes may also have by-laws about you keeping animals. The by-laws may allow pets to be kept with written approval prior to taking up tenancy or prohibit pets (except for assistance animals) outright. In this case the landlord or the real estate agent must provide a written copy of the by-laws within seven days of you moving in.
Noise, Barking & Nuisance
You have a responsibility not to permit any form of nuisance, or to disrupt the peace and privacy of your neighbours.
Any pets that make excessive noise may breach your agreement. The definition of excessive will depend on the circumstances of the time of day and frequency. Lots of other forms of nuisance-making may also breach your agreement.
Make sure you report any repairs to fences or gates to make it easier to keep your pet contained.
Damage to Landlord’s Premises
You must not intentionally or otherwise negligently cause any damage to your rental property. It is your responsibility to leave the rented premises in the same or similar condition from when you first inhabited the rental.
If any of your pets have scratched doors or floorboards, for example, it will be part of your responsibility to repair or pay for the damage.
Landlord’s Right to Access
If you were wondering if your landlord can access your home without you giving any consent – he can. Even without you present in a few circumstances.
See Factsheet No. 8: Access and Privacy.
What happens when your landlord knows that your pet is present and leaves a gate open? If your dog escapes and runs out then gets run over by a car, you may be due compensation.
Cleaning Up Your Rental
If you have permission to keep a pet on the property, you might only have to have your rental cleaned professionally or have it pest controlled by a pest firm if it’s necessary to fix an issue. For example you don’t have to have it professionally cleaned if you have a goldfish.
In some agreements, landlords and real estate agents will sometimes demand extra bond (over & above the standard 4 weeks) if you have a pet.
These dodgy “pet bonds” are not legal and mostly not even lodged with the Renting Services. They instead are kept separate in an account.
This is kept by your landlord or your agent. We stress that “Pet bonds” are not, and never have been lawful in NSW.
Guide Dogs for the Blind – Assistance Animals
It is now illegal for any landlord or strata manager to deny you having an assistance animal. For a full definition of an assistance animal as defined, look under the Companion Animals Act 1998 of NSW. Guide dogs and Assistance animals are required to be registered to help people with disabilities.
If your landlords tells you that you can’t have an assistance animal within your rental, consider complaining via the Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW, or the Australian Human Rights Commission.
