Fleas are external parasites that live off the blood of mammals (including humans) and birds.

They have mouths that can pierce skin and suck blood. There are over 2,000 species of fleas identified around the world.

Fleas are a common problem for people who have pets within their home or work with animals. They have a hard, polished body with a very tough exterior, which is able to withstand great pressure. This means they are able to survive repeated attempts by animals and humans to eliminate them, such as a dog scratching his coat. And because their bodies are laterally compressed, fleas can move easily between the hairs or feathers on their hosts’ bodies.

Although they don’t have any wings, fleas are extremely agile, with long legs that are well adapted for jumping. In fact, most fleas can jump up to 18cm vertically and up to 33cm horizontally. This makes them one of the best jumpers (relative to body size) of all known animals, coming second only to the froghopper.


Without an effective pest control program in place, fleas can be tricky to get rid of. This is why most rental properties will require tenants with pets to complete an end-of-lease flea service in order to get their bond refund. A1-Pro Termite works with real estate agents throughout Australia to provide flea treatments.
