Fleas are a great concern when it comes to health pertaining to bacterial infections, diseases, and allergic reactions causing severe itching.
Fleas are carriers for tapeworms that can be transferred to animals. There are several species of fleas like cat, dog, sand and others; the most common is the cat flea.
Fleas are parasites that pierce the skin and suck the blood from the host. After feeding, they can leave welts and sores that can irritate the skin. Adults are 3mm in length and are brown to blackish in colour.
These pests can become a great annoyance in a household and multiply rapidly, laying 400 eggs within 6 months. Eggs can hatch 2-14 days from being laid.
