Flea Appearance

Fleas are a reddish-brown color. They are wingless, blood sucking insects. Their bodies are flattened from side to side which allows them to easily move through the hairs of their victim's body. They also have long legs which help them jump.

  • Size: A flea's length is about 1/6 inch.
  • Behavior: Fleas are parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts. The hosts are normally humans or pets. Some fleas can lay up to 500 eggs during a few months.
  • Habitat: Fleas can live on a wide variety of warm blooded animals such as dogs, cats, humans, chickens, mice, rats, rabbits and squirrels. They are brought inside by animals.
