DIS.IN.FX® Flea Control

Flea Control To Protect Your Family


Understanding Fleas

Fleas are tiny, flightless parasites that survive by feeding on the blood of warm-blooded animals. The most common in homes are cat fleas, which, despite their name, can also feed on dogs and humans. Fleas are known for their incredible jumping abilities, able to leap distances over 100 times their body length. This ability makes it easy for them to move between hosts and environments​. 


Identifying Flea Infestations

Adult fleas are about 1/8 inch long, making them visible to the naked eye. They are usually dark reddish-brown, with a flat body that helps them move quickly through an animal's fur. Fleas do not have wings, but their six long legs allow them to jump long distances. 

Recognizing the signs of flea activity can help you catch a flea infestation early before it becomes widespread. Signs include flea feces (tiny dark spots), especially in areas where pets rest, and excessive scratching by pets or bite marks on your skin.

You can also identify fleas by:

  • Cover your feet and lower leg with long white socks. Walk where you suspect fleas are in or around your home. Shine a flash on your socks to inspect for fleas.
  • Shining a flashlight on furniture and pet beds.
  • Comb through your pet's fur to the skin to inspect.
