Places to watch
Most common during the summer, especially when homes are reoccupied after vacation. Cat fleas are often found in carpets and on upholstered furniture. Most commonly hosted by cats, dogs, humans and a wide variety of animals.
Fleas are extremely small, averaging 2 to 4mm in length. The body is flattened vertically and is covered with spines which project backward. They are wingless but have long, powerful legs for jumping great distances.
