Fleas are very tiny yet nuisance insects that can create a lot of discomfort or inconvenience to homeowners facing a fleas infestation. They likely infect pets likes dog and cats and live in their fur coat. They are less visible and their jumps make them difficult to eliminate. People who have and had pets are at a more risk for fleas invasion. These pests are also considered the primary concern of distress in pets and humans due to their bites.
There are many species of flea, but most of them are about 2-3 mm long and red or brown in color. Most possibly, the adult fleas pierce the skin of mammals or birds and feed on their blood. However, the larvae feed on the organic matter that generally gets deposited on the carpets or bedding.
Flea cocoons can remain dormant for more than two years and can wake up with the vibration of footsteps. It is very common for a flea infestation to remain dormant in an inhabited home but to awaken up when people move in.
