Last year was the first time in many years that we have seen a real problem with fleas in Canberra and Queanbeyan. These pesky parasites are normally killed off in our harsh winters and don’t breed well in our dry summers as the eggs need 70% humidity to hatch. With all the welcome rain however, fleas have decided that Canberra is now a great place to live and taken up residence in the millions!
