Seasonal occurrence of fleas on antelope ground squirrels in the Great Salt Lake Desert



Seasonal occurrence of fleas on antelope ground squirrels in the Great Salt Lake Desert



Jour Econ Ent 51(1): 32-36



A 12-month investigation of Citellus leucurus leucurus in a small area located in Tooele County, Utah, substantiated the seasonal fluctuations in occurrence of flea spp. in that host. A reversal in the relationship between indices of Thrassis bacchi gladiolis and Hoplopsyllus anomalus to atmospheric temperature and relative humidity was indicated. Average temperature of 64[degree] F and average relative atmospheric humidity of 40% represent approximate critical points at which changes in spp. indices begin to reverse for the 2 spp. considered. A 3d spp., Rhadinopsylla heiseri was recovered in Nov. and Dec. only. Further data are presented regarding sex ratio of fleas and ratio of infestation of male and female squirrels.
