Fleas are parasites, feeding directly on man or other warm blooded animals. Usually you or your pet serves as these “hosts”. A flea can jump 7-8 inches vertically and 14-16 inches horizontally.
A skin reaction to a flea bite would be a slightly raised, red, itching spot. Sometimes bleeding does occur. Fleas usually require warm and humid conditions to develop. Due to the flea cycle and weather conditions many people don’t realize they have a flea problem until they return home from vacation or a move to new premises and are confronted by “hungry fleas”. There are several types of fleas but the most common is the cat flea. Fleas are attracted to body heat, movement, and carbon dioxide exhaled.
