The Flea is found on villagers.
The Flea can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Fleas are tiny insects that feed on blood from humans and animals, which then results in an itchy rash. They use their piercing mouths to suck blood while injecting saliva into their host at the same time. Unlike mosquitoes, both males and females suck blood. The females are larger than the males."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"It's a flea! Ah, itchy!"
