Fleas are small reddish brown wingless insects with tube-like mouthparts for feeding on the blood of their hosts. Their bodies are flattened to make it easy for them to travel through hair. Their body is hard and has hairs and spines. They have long hind legs adapted for jumping.
Fleas lay small white oval eggs. The larvae are small, eyeless and worm-like covered in bristles. The larvae pupate in a silk, debris covered cocoon.
Fleas feed off the blood of humans and animals such as dogs and cats. Since fleas use a wide range of hosts, diseases can be transferred from one host to another. Fleas are known to transmit tapeworm larvae and, uncommonly, the disease murine typhus.
