Fleas

Common Flea magnified

Blood-sucking fleas not only attack your pets – such as cats and dogs – but they will quite happily feed on your blood too!

Description

Pleas are relatively small insects. They can be difficult to catch as they will quickly hop off thier hosts if they feel threatened. Despite their size, they can hop for some distance and quickly hide away. Fleas are often bought into the house by your cats or dogs.
