COMMON ARIZONA PESTS
Fleas are one to the most important
groups of insect pests because they not only cause discomfort by
biting, but they can transmit several diseases such as plague
and murine typhus. Color brownish black to black, but reddish
black when full of blood. It is not necessary to have pets in
the building in order to have fleas present.
Since fleas can jump about 6” (15 cm) vertically, they can
easily hitch a ride on shoes, trousers, etc. Many vacationers
who may have been unaware of the few adult fleas present, are
often greeted and severely attacked by fleas upon their return.
This can occur even if the building has been vacant of animals
and people for as long as 6 months or so.
