The only flea species that can survive and reproduce on human blood are human fleas (P. irritans). If you’ve had fleas for multiple months with no pets in the home, then this is likely the species you’re dealing with.

This site isn’t focused heavily on human fleas, as it’s a somewhat rare species. Regardless, control is similar for all species. Take a look at our How to get rid of fleas page for comprehensive control information. Obviously the section about pet treatments can be ignored.

If you have further questions let me know!
