ABSTRACT
Flea, a tiny, wingless insect. It is a household and barnyard pest, and a parasite that carries disease. Adult fleas, both male and female, live in the fur and hair of mammals and the feathers of birds, and feed exclusively on their blood. Their powerful sense of smell leads fleas to their victims.
