Can fleas live on you and your kids?
The news is not all bad

If you have ever been bitten by a flea, you may have wondered whether fleas can live on people. The good news is, most fleas don't live on people, with one exception and that is the human flea (Pulex Irritans).

Fortunately, human fleas prefer pigs and other wild life, and are rarely found in normal domestic homes. They are more often associated with homes near wildlife parks/animal sanctuaries/zoos and similar, especially in warm regions.

Fleas which set up camp in our homes and feed on our blood are most frequently the cat flea variety (Ctenocephalides felis). Cat fleas are not particularly fussy, and will feed on blood of any human or animal that passes their patch.

However, whilst cat fleas do bite humans they are far less likely to want to stay on humans. They much prefer fur/hair/carpets/rugs/curtains/drapes and dust to make a permanent home for themselves and their off-spring.

Sometimes dog fleas (Ctenocephalides canis) can invade human homes too. Dog fleas, like cat fleas, are not fussy about whose blood they feed on either and they will also hop on humans for a meal.

In general fleas move on from humans pretty quickly. They don't like our habits of showering/bathing and wearing clean clothes; and our relatively hairless bodies are not as attractive as our four legged friends. After biting us they normally move on to greener pastures, e.g. the family cat/dog and or our carpets and curtains.

If you have pets, protect them from flea infestations by using one of the flea protection products advertised on this website, or take advice from your vet.

Most importantly get your home treated on a regular basis by a commercial pest control agent. If you shop around you will be able to find one which uses chemicals that are pet and children friendly. By doing this you are also protecting you and your family from other insect nasties as well, e.g. ants and cockroaches.

How to get rid of fleas

Recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) research, indicates that 50% of American families use some type of chemical flea and tick control on their pets.

In so doing, they are unwittingly exposing millions of pets, kids and indeed themselves to toxic chemicals on a daily basis.

Plus there is a similar knock on effect for people who work in the pet industry, e.g. groomers and boarding kennels. If you are a member of one of these families, or you work in the pet industry, then you must watch the following video.

It is fair to say if 50% of American families are using chemical flea and tick control, then a similar yard stick can be applied to other countries, e.g. Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
