Can Fleas Fly?

Do Fleas Have Wings?

Fleas do not fly and are wingless as adults.

Jumping Fleas

Their preferred method of movement is for the adults to jump onto a host when that animal passes close by.

How Flea Larvae Get Around

Flea larvae are mobile and will move slowly from one location to another by crawling. The main reasons flea larvae move are to locate food and a protective, shaded, moist location that is favorable to the flea larvae’s survival.
