Ticks and Fleas – Sydney has a Growing Tick and Flea Problem


Sara Robinson, an epidemiologist working for the Centre for Disease Control, states that everyone needs to be switched on about the risks of lime disease and the range of other tick borne diseases that pose a threat to anyone, especially children and pets! Personal protection against ticks is essential all year round if you’re living in the Northern Beaches or North Shore. Tick control is a growing issue across Sydney and many are oblivious to the risks that come along with it.

Fleas are a commonly found on properties that have pets as well as a tick infestation. Though fleas don’t pose much of a threat to us they can be a huge hassle to our pets and an annoyance to homeowners that have to put up with the constant itchiness that accompanies a flea infestation. Ticks and fleas are both tiny pests which makes them that much harder to track down and exterminate.

Though ticks prefer longer grass and thick brush, fleas on the other hand enjoy hanging out in lawns as well as the cracks and crevices inside your home. It’s true that a surface spray or can of pesticide will kill fleas that it reaches but due to the fact that fleas are often also out in the lawn or hiding in little cracks it can miss them and they’ll just re-infest the home!  A1 Pest Control recommends a comprehensive tick or flea treatment to be carried out by a qualified firm such as ourselves.

Another essential step in creating a tick and flea free home is using a product such as Frontline Plus for your pets. Frontline Plus is one of the most well reviewed and recommended flea preventative treatments for pets on the market. Just have a look at these reviews!


We love to use Frontline Plus for our
2 labs because it is waterproof. Our dogs love to swim when we go up north and
I don’t have to worry about they flea control between applications!


I have bought Frontline for all my
animals with excellent results. I live out in the country with large yard for
both my dog’s and cat’s to roam and Frontline works great for both flea and tick
control. Highly recommended.


Frontline is pretty much the industry
standard for flea and tick treatment. I recommend this to everyone.


No fleas here on our six critters and
munchers…not even during the predicted flea months – – – We use it faithfully
once a month. Good stuff!



As you can see Frontline Plus is truly an industry standard we recommend using such a product as well as regularly bathing your pets with a safe and certified permethrin based shampoo. Making sure that your pets are regularly inspected for ticks or fleas, washed with a flea killing shampoo and regularly vacuuming your home are the key steps to preventing a ticks and flea infestation in your home.
