Flea is a parasite for us and dogs, because it lives at the expense of our blood. It is important to recognize your trail, life stages and physical appearance in order to be familiar with your presence and be able to prevent or combat them.

 Explore 10 interesting things about fleas and be amazed: 

  1. All species of flea has 4 stages of life: egg, larva, pupa and adult.
  2. Fleas feed on the host's blood ( who houses another inside or who carries it on himself ): humans, dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and many other animals in the wild.
  3. A female flea can leave up to 2000 eggs throughout its life.
  4. An adult flea lives 2 to 3 months, however it has been reported that a flea without a host can live more than 100 days without eating blood.
  5. A female flea consumes 15 times its blood weight per day.
  6. A flea can jump up to 20 centimeters high, or about 150 times its size. That's how your we could jump a tall building in just a jump.
  7. Dogs with flea infestation may have anemia, flatworms, or severe itchy outbreaks throughout the body.
  8. Some dogs develop moderate to severe allergy to flea saliva, which can cause excessive irritation and itching.
  9. The best way to check if a dog has fleas is by using a special flea brush, brushing from head to tail, being attentive to any trace of flea (whether at any of its life stages or waste).
  10. Although more than 2000 species and subspecies of fleas are currently known, the cat flea species ( Ctenocephalides felis), is the one that commonly affects dogs and cats.
