Flea Facts
Fleas are small wingless blood-sucking parasites. An adult flea is about 2 and 2.5 mm in length. There are different types of fleas. These include cat flea, dog flea, bird flea and the human flea.

Depending on the type, a flea can be dark mahogany or greyish in colour. Usually, fleas have flattened bodies. Their hind legs, which they use for jumping, are well developed. The mouth-parts are pointed and adapted to sucking and piercing. Their eyes are small and covered in spines and backward facing bristles.

Adult fleas thrive on the blood that they draw from their hosts. On the other hand, flea larvae feed on the faeces of adult fleas as they contain undigested blood. Flea larvae love to hide in dark humid places. This is why you are likely to find in carpet fluff and animal beddings.
