There are approximately 1,600 species of fleas throughout the world, of which 95% live on mammals. Fleas account for more than half of all dermatological conditions requiring veterinary assistance, and even a single fleabite to a hypersensitive animal or person may cause intense itching and irritation. Fleas that have fed on rodents may transmit diseases, including plague and murine typhus. Other flea-related health problems include flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), anemia, rickettsiosis, tapeworms, and cat scratch disease.
There are more than 850 tick species, about 100 of which are capable of transmitting diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Although ticks cannot run, hop, fly or move quickly, they are very good climbers and are usually found outdoors in grassy or forested areas from ground level to three feet above the ground.
