Cat Flea and Tick Control

The cat flea with the scientific name of Ctenocephalides felis is an extremely common parasitic insect whose principal host is the domestic cat. The cat flea affects both the cat and the dog worldwide. The cat flea can also maintain its life cycle on other carnivores and on omnivores, but these are only chosen when more acceptable hosts become unavailable. Adult cat fleas do not willingly leave their hosts.
