Description

"Of the approximately 500 species of fleas known to exist, less than one dozen are of special interest as pests to many and domestic animals, but any individual of one of these few species, when bent upon satisfying its appetite, fully occupies the attention of its chosen host. The human flea, dog flea, cat flea, sticktight flea or chicken flea, and the rat fleas (which carry the bubonic plague), are the principal species that annoy man and domestic animals in the United States. The main steps in control, as described in this bulletin, are the elimination of breeding places and the destruction of fleas on the infested animals. If breeding places receive proper attention the premises often will be cleared of fleas, even though little or no attention is given to the animals themselves." -- p. 2
