Circadian rhythm in the cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae)



Circadian rhythm in the cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae)



Progress in Clinical and Biological Research 341b: 661-665



Experiments were designed to determine the presence of circadian rhythms in flea locomotion. Larvae of a Florida strain of C. felis were reared on an artificial diet and maintained at 27+or-2 degrees C, RH 80-90% and a photoperiod of LD 12:12. Flea pupae were held for 3 days at 27+or-2 degrees C, RH 65-70% and LD 14:10. A modified, 3-channel, vibration sensitive actograph system was used to monitor adult flea locomotor activity on a daily basis.
