Fleas are common household pests attacking dogs, cats and sometimes people. In addition to these, several other fleas species feeding principally on rodents and occasionally on poultry and livestock.

Adult fleas are approximately 1/12 to 1/8 inch long, wingless, reddish-brown, hard bodied and compressed from side to side like the blade of a knife. Fleas are excellent jumpers, which gives the false impression that they can fly.

Adult fleas are primarily external parasites of cats and dogs but, in the absence of their preferred hosts, will bite humans.

Adult fleas have piercing-sucking mouth-parts with which they penetrate the skin for a blood meal. Flea bites most often occur on legs, particularly around the ankles. The typical human reaction to a flea bite is the formation of a small, hard, red, slightly raised, itching spot with no swelling. Some bleeding can occur, particularly if the bitten area is scratched.

Fleas can be successfully controlled only when infested pests and premises are treated at the same time. Effective flea management involves:
