Fleas
Fleas

Fleas are a serious problem in homes especially for those with cats or dogs. While fleas can transmit disease, they are also frequently found when moving into a home that previously had pets.


There are many species of flea, most are 2 - 3mm long and red or brown in color. Adult fleas pierce the skin of mammals or birds to feed on blood. However, flea larvae feed on organic matter in carpets or bedding and so high levels of hygiene can slow the life - cycle.


Flea cocoons can remain dormant for two years or more and are awoken by the vibration of footsteps. It is very common for a flea infestation to remain dormant in an empty home but to awaken when people move in.


Human Fleas have developed to specialize on different animals, but the human flea that lives on people (and some animals with similar skin) is rarely common on cities. They can be found exceptionally around farms where human fleas are found on pigs and these can jump to humans. Human fleas will bite anywhere on the body and are associated with itchiness as fleas crawl over the skin.
 

Cat fleas will bite humans, but they do not live on the human body. They will bite the hands and body when handling pets or pet bedding, but the most common place for flea bites are the feet and lower legs. There are usually many more fleas living on carpets and pet bedding than on the pets themselves; they will jump up and bite people as they come close.
