The Nature of Fleas

Fleas are often mistaken for lice, ticks and bed bugs. A flea is a tiny insect; an adult flea averages 1/8th of an inch. A flea has a flat body from one side to the other, with piercing mouths that help them in sucking blood. They are also wingless in appearance and reddish-brown to black in colour. Fleas survive on blood and can live without a meal for about 100 days. Fleas live on pets, in carpets, in sofas, and on other household and farm items. Household pests like dogs and cats can very quickly bring fleas into your house.

The Danger of Fleas

Despite their small size, fleas are incredibly dangerous pests. The biggest danger these small insects pose is the diseases they carry and spread. Some of the most common diseases fleas carry and transmit include the bubonic plague, murine typhus, tularemia, and tungiasis. If you have never heard of the bubonic plague, it is one of the most deadly diseases in human history and was responsible for over 25 million deaths during the late 1600s. Fortunately, more advanced treatments for flea-borne diseases exist today, but contracting something from one of these pests is still extremely unpleasant.

Fleas Know How to Hide

Fleas are much more common than you might think. Out in nature, these pests live inside the fur of wildlife and feed on blood to survive. A female flea produces around 2,000 eggs in her lifetimes. That’s roughly 50 eggs a day for 50 days total. A sizable number of these eggs fall off and die before reaching adulthood, but you still get our point. Fleas are everywhere and are always looking for more opportunities to find a good meal.

How Fleas Invade Homes

When it comes to invading a home, fleas have options. They can be brought indoors from one of your pets outdoors. Fleas can hide on the backs of rodents. Some fleas will ride into homes on the backs of invasive birds and bats. If all else fails, these small parasitic pests might take invasion into their own hands and crawl through an opening in your home themselves. In short, fleas have options.

Why Fleas Are Hard To Exterminate

Fleas are incredibly small and only grow to be an eighth of an inch in length; this pest’s jump, however, is anything but small. A fully grown flea can jump over a foot into the air and use this ability to get from one host to another. Inside homes fleas use their small size and mobility to avoid danger. Even if you treat your living areas for these pests, they can still hide inside your walls where they can live up to 100 days without a blood meal. Once the danger is gone, they will simply hop back out and continue to cause trouble.
