They are between 1½-5 mm in length (1/16 to 3/16 of an inch) and are an oval shape when looked at from the side. Fleas are brown in color and have very powerful legs adapted for jumping. Fleas are very thin, which enables them to move easily through the hairs of their host. It is important to regularly check pets for any sign of fleas. This can be done by grooming the pet with a flea comb. If a flea is found it can be disposed of by placing it under hot water in a small bowl.
