Studies on flea fauna in El Fayoum Governorate, Egypt.
J Egypt Soc Parasitol. 1992 Dec; 22(3):783-99.JE

Abstract

This paper dealt with the studies of flea fauna as collected on the rodent hosts over one year. The collected rodents (499) in a descending order of abundance in the collection were Rattus rattus, R. norvegicus, Mus musculus, Gerbillus pyramidum and Arvicanthis niloticus. The collected fleas in a descending order in the collection were X. cheopis, P. irritans, N. jasciatus, C. felis, L. segnis and E. gallinacea. The total flea index reached the maximum (0.76) in May and it was zero in December and January. The highest number of fleas was on R. norvegicus and A. niloticus and the lowest was on G. pyramidum. The highest number of rodents and their flea ectoparasites was during the Spring and the lowest was during Autumn. The medical importance of the collected fleas and the whole results were discussed.
