Blood feeding arthropods such as fleas are of great concern to the public not only because of their annoying and often painful bites, but more importantly because many are vectors of pathogens.
The common Cat Flea, our primary flea problem in the United States, can jump about 13 inches, which turns out to be 100 times its body length. This does not appear to tire the flea out too quickly, as a newly emerged flea, seeking its first blood meal, is capable of jumping 40,000 times without stopping. Other types of fleas found in the U.S. include dog fleas, mouse fleas and squirrel fleas. Besides coming into the house on our cat or dog, fleas often enter the home by catching a ride on rodents in the attic or crawlspace, raccoons or skunks in the yard or under the deck, perhaps bats roosting in the house.
