What Do Fleas Look Like?

Flea extermination near Milwaukee, WIFleas are reddish-brown, growing up to 1/8 inch in length with three pairs of legs. Enlarged hind legs enable fleas to leap up to 7 inches vertically and 13 inches horizontally. They are typically found in places where animals sleep and frequent, preferring to attach to a host such as a cat, dog, or human. Fleas are ectoparasites—animals needing to live on the outside of the host’s body and feed off its blood in order to live and reproduce.

Fleas lay their eggs when animals sleep, usually in thick, fibrous material such as carpet strands or thickly woven fabric. Female fleas lay up to 200 eggs at a time, which can led to a massive infestation in a fairly short time. Urban wildlife is often the guilty culprit for introducing fleas to household pets and leading them into homes.

Flea Bite First Aid

Flea bites on both pets and people can cause severe allergic reactions, particularly for those who are sensitive to the saliva fleas inject when biting. Flea bites on humans are easily identified by clusters of red, itchy bumps which often bleed slightly from a single puncture at the center of the bite. Bites usually appear in clusters of 3 or 4, although an entire area of one's body can be covered with dozens, even hundreds, of flea bites.

As painfully itchy as flea bites are, scratching only makes matters worse by opening the door to an infection and a prolonged rash. Here are the best tips we've found for dealing with flea bites:
