Fleas feed off the blood of a host usually a dog, cat, rat or human. They will usually live as parasites on warm blooded vertebrates, however in the absence of a host they often live in fabric with carpet being perfect for larvae to develop. In the UK fleas (although feeding on blood) are in general, not responsible for the spread of disease although in the past were thought to be responsible for the transference of the bubonic plague from rats to humans. The effects of a flea bite include an intense itching sensation and sometimes allergic reactions. Bites can remain itchy and inflamed for weeks causing severe discomfort.
