Fleas are small blood-sucking insects. Adult fleas must feed on blood in order to reproduce; however, adults can live for long periods without feeding. Fleas usually live and breed most heavily where pets rest. Pets infested with fleas bite and scratch themselves constantly. Cat fleas and dog fleas may be intermediate hosts for the dog tapeworm. If fleas are established in a home, they will feed on man as well as on the pets. Some people suffer more than others from flea bites. The bites can cause intense itching often resulting in secondary infection.
