Human flea (Pulex irritans)
The human flea is 1-4mm in length and is black or brown in appearance with no wings. They are now less common in the UK apart from in agricultural areas where they can survive on pigs and jump to humans. They can survive by breeding on pigs, hedgehogs, foxes and badgers and if found in homes it will usually be in bedrooms. The adult human flea can live from 2 weeks to a year depending on the habitat and will wait several months for a host to feed from.
