Not the most common type of flea but more
evil than a normal flea!
Sand fleas (flies) which have a scientific
name of Ceratopogonidaes but are more
commonly know by us as no see ums or biting
midges, these creatures normally live in
the sand (hence the name) or sandy places
sometimes mountain sides.
The most common place to get a sand flea
bite is from sitting on the beach. Sand
fleas do not tend to like extreme heat so
being on the beach during the day presents
only a small risk of getting bitten.
