Flea, the common name for the order Siphonaptera, includes 2,500 species of small flightless insects that survive as external parasites on animals.
Fleas live by consuming blood from their hosts. Adult fleas grow to about 3 mm (0.12 in) long, are usually brown, and have bodies that are “flattened” sideways or narrow, enabling them to move through their host’s fur or feathers. When not on a host they like to live in sandy areas outside or carpeted areas internally.
Fleas need to be treated with products that either render the egg infertile, or a residual chemical to kill the fleas once the eggs have hatched.
