Fleas are small, wingless, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. Fleas are very agile insects that use their long legs to jump on and off of their hosts. Proper inspection is key to determining if you have fleas. You should look for the appearance of the fleas in your pet’s fur, on your body or on the flooring of the living space, especially carpeting. If there is a flea infestation many times when you run your hand along the top of carpeting or rugs you will see the fleas jumping.
