Common Species of Fleas
Cat Flea (Ctenocephalides felis)
Don’t let the name fool you – these guys don’t just target cats. Humans and dogs can fall victim to this aggressive biter too! They are reddish-brown with flat bodies and about 1-2 mm long.
Dog Flea (Ctenocephalides canis)
Another popular culprit when it comes to infestations – these brownish-black fleas primarily prefer dogs as hosts but won’t hesitate to snack on other animals or humans too.
Rat Flea (Xenopsylla cheopis)
As you might guess from the name, rat fleas prefer rats for a meal; however, if their preferred host is unavailable they’ll use whomever is around them as a meal source leading to disease transmission including plague.
Human Flea (Pulex irritans)
Although uncommon in many parts nowadays, these little vampires specifically love feasting on human blood! Similar in appearance to cat and dog fleas but slightly larger.

How do I get rid of fleas permanently?
Fleas reproduce quickly. So without proper preventative measures in place they’ll likely return in no time. While effective pest removal solutions may eradicate existing pests, true “permanent” expulsion requires an integrated approach. Including targeted application techniques designed to take into account nesting sites & habitat preferences along with ongoing preventative measures. These may include physical controls and personal hygiene habits.
How do fleas breed?
Fleas have a fascinating breeding process that starts when a female flea feeds on a blood meal, providing her with the necessary nutrients for reproduction. After obtaining this meal, she lays 20-50 eggs at once and can lay hundreds of eggs in her lifetime. These eggs usually fall off the host animal and end up in various places like pet bedding or carpets.
Eggs hatch within 2-14 days, depending on environmental conditions, giving birth to flea larvae. During the larval stage, they feed on organic debris and go through several molts before entering the pupal stage. Depending on the species of flea and conditions like temperature and humidity, they may remain in their pupal stage anywhere from a week to months.
Finally, adult fleas emerge from their protective cocoons when they sense nearby hosts (e.g., by detecting warmth or vibrations). They jump onto their new host to start feeding quickly, repeating this entire life cycle for future generations of fleas.
Do fleas cause allergies?
Yes, flea bites can cause allergic reactions in some people and animals. When these tiny pests bite their victims to obtain nourishment from blood meals, they inject saliva containing histamine-like compounds into their hosts’ skin which often results in redness or itching at the bite site.
In more severe cases of sensitivity to this saliva component(s), individuals may develop raised welts or suffer from more pronounced itchiness across other areas too. Moreover, long-term exposure to flea bites may predispose susceptible pets such as cats or dogs toward developing allergic dermatitis. An unfavorable condition characterized by skin inflammation and intense scratching response(s).
