Did You Know...?

What is a pupa? It's the stage of life just before the adult stage. A flea pupa can hatch and jump on you as you walk by. That's like a human baby being able to jump 6 ft straight up immediately after it was born.

Health Risks

The cat flea is capable of transmitting plague and murine typhus to humans, but such reports are rare. They are mostly a nuisance to humans and pets. Bites usually cause minor itching, but may be more irritating to those with sensitive skin. A common problem for the pet is flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), which pet owners in the United States annually spend millions of dollars to treat. FAD, may last up to 5 days and can cause intense itching, reddening at the bite site, hair loss, and secondary infection. These pests also serve as intermediate hosts of the dog tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum).


Control is difficult for pet owners because it requires the elimination of fleas from the pet, the home, the yard, and breaking the cycle of re-infestation. Removal of fleas from the pet alone is useless. Immature fleas (eggs, larvae, pupae) develop off the pet and new adults simply jump on, beginning the infestation cycle once more.

The result is long term control.
