Flea Identification & Prevention

What are fleas?

Fleas are small parasitic insects known for their impressive jumping ability, tiny size, and their common appearance on cats and dogs. Fleas are typically dark brown or reddish-brown in color, they have six legs and biting mouthparts, and adults grow to approximately an eighth of an inch in length.

A flea infestation on your property often quickly grows out of control due to the prolific nature of this pest and fast reproduction times. Effective flea control depends on the total elimination of all life stages of fleas (egg, larva, pupa, and adult) in order to completely remove an infestation.

Where will I find fleas?

Fleas are either found in outdoor areas hiding and looking for hosts, on animals and humans, or hiding in indoor spaces. You may encounter fleas in long grasses, on wild animals, on cats and dogs that don't have flea protections applied, or hiding in the fibers of carpets and fabrics found in indoor areas.

Why do I have a flea problem?

Flea problems are likely to start on properties that have plenty of the things they love – animals or humans to feed on and easy hiding spots. Areas with an excess of light, movement, heat, and carbon dioxide tend to attract fleas, as they look for all these items as an indicator suitable hosts for feeding are nearby.

Natural flea treatment involves reducing and removing these factors to make your property less hospitable to fleas. It's also important to vacuum and wash pet bedding regularly to pick up any stray fleas that have made their way inside or flea eggs that have been laid before an infestation has time to spread.
