Fleas can make pets' lives miserable, and humans begin to itch just at the thought of them. Controlling a flea infestation requires treating your pets, the inside of your home, and flea activity sites outside all at the same time.

Appearance 

Tiny, about 1/6" in length; reddish brown and flattened.

Habitat 

Fleas live on the bodies of animals and feed on their blood. Because fleas usually feed and lay their eggs while an animal is sleeping, your pet’s resting area is where the most fleas will be found. Pets get fleas from being outside in the yard.

Diet 

Larvae feed on organic debris, particularly the feces of adult fleas, which contain undigested blood. Females need to feed on animal blood in order to produce eggs.
