Ctenocephalides felis, the 'cat flea', is one of the most profuse and prevalent fleas found in the world. As the name suggests, the 'cat flea's' primary host is the domestic cat but they can also live on other pets and animals, such as dogs, rodents and possums. Fleas can enter buildings that do not have pets as they can jump up about 15cms and enter on peoples shoes and clothes. Even if a structure has been empty for 6 months, should there have been flea larvae or cocoons present, it is possible for the population to have grown to be a nuisance, since a continual food source is not required. Fleas can be very difficult pests to get rid of as they can be brought in to your property from outside sources, even though you may not have a pet.
