Flea Control FifeFlea Control Fife:

Flea’s are wingless insect’s (1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long) that are agile, usually dark colored (for example, the reddish-brown of the cat flea), with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their host’s.

Their leg’s are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping: a flea can jump vertically up to 7 inches (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 inches (33 cm),making the flea one of the best jumper’s of all known animals (relative to body size), second only to the frog hopper.

The tough body is able to withstand great pressure, likely an adaptation to survive attempt’s to eliminate them by mashing or scratching. Even hard squeezing between the finger’s is normally insufficient to kill a flea.

It is possible to eliminate them by pressing individual flea’s with adhesive tape or by rolling a flea briskly between the finger’s to disable it then crushing it between the fingernail’s.

Fleas lay tiny white oval-shaped egg’s better viewed through a loupe or magnifying glass.

The larva is small, pale, has bristle’s covering its worm-like body, lacks eye’s, and has mouth-parts adapted to chewing.

Flea larvae feed on various organic matters. The adult flea’s diet consists solely of fresh blood.
