Cat flea larvae don’t bite. They neither live on hosts nor suck blood. Flea larvae are free-living, not parasitic. They feed on adult flea feces and eggs in the environment.
Flea Larvae don’t Bite
Flea Larvae aren’t Parasitic
Cat flea larvae are free-living. They don’t have a direct parasitic relationship with a host. The larvae don’t live on hosts, nor do they suck a host’s blood for sustenance. Flea larvae won’t bite dogs, cats, or humans.
The mouth-parts of adult fleas are well-adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood. Larvae don’t have mouth-parts for parasitic feeding. Instead, they possess powerful mandibles for chewing solid food.
