The effects of flea egg consumption on larval cat flea (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae) development



The effects of flea egg consumption on larval cat flea (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae) development



Journal of Vector Ecology 25(1): 98-101



Ctenocephalides felis larvae feeding on the faeces of adult fleas that were maintained on cats and were provided with frozen flea eggs ad libitum each consumed an average of 21.7+or-3.9 eggs and developed rapidly with 100% adult emergence. In contrast, 93.4% of larvae held individually and provided with only flea faeces did not survive to the adult stage. Developing larvae consumed eggs in the presence of yeast and rearing diet.
