Cat Flea and Dog Flea
Fleas are wingless insects averaging 1/12-1/6 inches long. Long legs allow them to jump an average of 7-8 inches vertically and 14-16 inches horizontally. Fleas are common pests of humans and animals around the world, although most prefer non-human hosts. Most common flea encountered in the United States is the Cat Flea. Dog fleas are found on wild animals, rarely on domestic animals. Both species are hosts of dog tape worm, which is common in both cats and dogs.
