How to Avoid Cat Flea Problems

The cat flea, ctenocephalides felis, is one of the most abundant and widespread species of flea on earth. Adults range from 1-2mm long and are usually a reddish- brown colour. The cat flea is compressed laterally perfectly suited for clinging and climbing through the host’s fur. The cat flea's primary host is the domestic cat, but the cat flea is also the primary flea infesting dogs in most of the world.
