Habitat

Fleas are parasites that live and feed on their hosts, any warm blooded body. Often brought into the home by family pet, these pests usually extend their diet to include humans when available.

Food Source

Inside the home, fleas feed primarily on cats, dogs and humans but will feed on any warm blooded body.

Threats

Fleas are the most common transmitter of the rare Bubonic Plague. They also transmit the bacterial disease murine typhus to humans through infected rats. Their saliva can cause serious Flea Allergy Dermatitus in pets, and their debris has been reported to cause similar allergic reactions in humans. Fleas can also transfer tapeworms and cause anemia in pets. Flea bites commonly cause painful, itchy red bumps.
