Flea Identification
Cat fleas are 3mm long wingless ticks, flattened from side to side with long legs enabling them to jump. They have both genal and pronotal combs (ctenidia), differentiating them from most other fleas of domestic animals.
Description
Cat fleas are often unable to determine whether a host is suitable until it has been bitten. If it is deemed unsuitable, the flea soon drops off.

Cat fleas nest where the host is in its usual resting place, for example the cat basket. This is where the young often drop to mature.

Cat fleas pass through four stages of development: eggs, larva, pupa, adult. The eggs are small and white. These stages combined vary from two weeks to eight months. The adult flea is awakened by the detection of vibration of pet or human movement, pressure, heat, noise, or carbon dioxide for potential blood meals. A cat flea cannot complete its life–cycle feeding only on human blood.
