Where Do Fleas Live Outside?

And How They Come Inside

How Far Can Fleas Jump?

Fleas are active all throughout the year. But some areas of the country seem to run into fleas more often in specific months. In Pennsylvania and the surrounding states, fleas are most active starting in April. Fleas live outside and then hitch a ride into your home. Learn where you can find them and how they come inside.

Where Do Fleas Live Outside?

Outside, fleas find moist, shady, cool places to live. You might find them in unruly parts of your grass, shrubs, leaf piles, and by shady trees. You won’t find them in tidy sunny spots where it gets too hot and there isn’t protection.

To prevent fleas from making your yard their home, you need to keep your yard tidy. This means mowing regularly so the grass doesn’t get too high, cutting back shrubs, and cleaning up leaf piles in a timely manner.

How Fleas Come Inside

Unlike some other pests, fleas only come inside when they hitch a ride on a person or pet. Your pet might hang out in the unruly part of your yard, or you might head there yourself. They might hop on your shoes and get right inside with you.
