Fleas are wingless insects that are extremely agile and outstanding jumpers. In fact, fleas are one of the longest jumpers in relation to their size in the entire animal kingdom. This jumping ability allows them to transfer from one host to another rather easily, including from pets to their humans.
They are common parasites that feed off of blood and their favorite hosts are usually our furry friends like cats and dogs. They can also end up on your property by hitching rides on rabbits, foxes, birds, rats, mice or any other long-haired animal.
There are numerous diseases that have been attributed to fleas. This comes from the fact that fleas drink blood, so they can transfer diseases from host to host and their saliva can carry bacteria.
