Flea Control Edinburgh:
Flea Control Edinburgh – Fleas are wingless insects (1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long) that are agile, usually dark colour (for example, the reddish-brown of the cat flea), with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts.
Their legs are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping: a flea can jump vertically up to 7 inches (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 inches (33 cm),making the flea one of the best jumpers of all known animals (relative to body size), second only to the froghopper.
The flea body is hard, polished, and covered with many hairs and short spines directed backward, which also assist its movements on the host.
The tough body is able to withstand great pressure, likely an adaptation to survive attempts to eliminate them by mashing or scratching.
Even hard squeezing between the fingers is normally insufficient to kill a flea. It is possible to eliminate them by pressing individual fleas with adhesive tape or by rolling a flea briskly between the fingers to disable it then crushing it between the fingernails.
Fleas lay tiny white oval-shaped eggs better viewed through a loupe or magnifying glass. The larva is small, pale, has bristles covering its worm-like body, lacks eyes, and has mouth-parts adapted to chewing.
The larvae feed on various organic matter, The adult flea’s diet consists solely of fresh blood.
