Thread subject: :: A question about Fleas (Siphonaptera)

Posted by pwalter on 09-06-2009 14:21

HI! I finally managed to catch a flea of a dog - first time in my life I see this insect order. Can anyone suggest how to examine it? Should I use NaOH to make it transparent with microscope? Should I dissect genitalia? How? It's some 2,5 mm, so not too small.
