Bad for you. Bad for your pets.

Fleas feed on humans and their pets, causing painful bites and irritation to various areas of the skin. Fleas commonly bite at the lower extremities, but may bite anywhere on the body.  The cat flea may also be an intermediary host for dog tapeworms to animals and murine typhus to humans.

What Fleas Look Like

The flea is 1/16 to 1/18 inch in length and dark in color.  Adult fleas are wingless insects that are flattened on each side. The most commonly encountered flea is the cat flea. Adult fleas feed exclusively on blood from humans and animals.  Flea eggs are often found on or near house pet’s resting areas. Flea larvae hide in dark areas close to the floor or ground.
