Fleas and flea control has been an issue presenting itself to humanity since the beginning of time. Fleas are highly specialized blood sucking parasites that generally get introduced to the home by cats and dogs.
Fleas are light brown to mahogany in color and roughly oval shaped. Their laterally flattened appearance allows them to move quickly. Fleas are 2-8 mm in length. They have a small head with sawing and sucking mouth parts, and two tiny eyes. Both the male and female rely on blood for their nutrition but can survive for several months without it.
Fleas have a four stage life cycle. 1. Eggs, 2. Larvae, 3. Pupa, 4. flea adults. The complete life cycle from flea eggs to flea adults can vary from two weeks to eight months.
Female fleas use the blood to nourish developing eggs, she will lay up to 4 eggs after each blood meal. Most female fleas will lay 100 eggs within her life of approximately eight months. The flea eggs are oval, white to cream in color and measure 0.5mm in length. The flea eggs hatch when they are vibrated from animal or human disturbance.
Fleas are likely to be found where pets feed, rest and play. From late December to late February, I don’t take my dog to the park because of all the fleas evident at the park. It’s the peak of the flea season. Prolonged periods of warm, humid weather in the summer months provide ideal conditions for fleas to flourish.

Fleas are notorious vectors of disease, particularly plague, but this disease has not occurred in Auckland for over 50 years. The important vector of plague is the rat flea which seldom attacks humans unless rat populations diminish rapidly due to control or disease. Although not common, another disease transmitted by rat fleas, murine or endemic typhus, does occur in NZ. Certain intestinal worm parasites of dogs and cats can be transferred to humans by fleas but as in this case, the infected flea has to be swallowed this method of infection is not common.
