Feeding Behavior of the rat Flea Nosopsyllus fasciatus. It has long been known that the semi-digested vertebrate blood in the faeces of adult fleas constitutes an important element of diet for their larvae.

The author has observed that larvae of Nosopsyllus fasciatus actively pursue adult fleas, grasp them in the anal region and avidly suck up faeces in liquid form, as it is emitted. Rapid sucking of fresh blood, water and rat urine has also been Cited by: 5.

An account is given of laboratory observations on Nosopsyltus fasciatus (Bosc) in the course of which it was seen that larvae that came near adult fleas in the nest débris would pursue and attempt to seize them and attach themselves by the mandibles to the posterior of stationary ones.

As fleas live on blood throughout their life-cycle, they are suitable for experiments to determine whether haematophagous insects suck blood because they lack in their bodies the iron essential for their growth. Previous work on the biology of fleas is briefly summarised.

The experiments described were carried out with Ceratophyllus (Nosopsyllus) fasciatus, Bosc, and details of the technique. The Biology of Ceratophyllus fasciatus Bosc., the Common Rat-Flea of Great Britain1 - Volume 14 Issue 2 - C. Strickland.

Populations of 3 species (Nosopsyllus iranus, Parapulex chephrenis and Xenopsylla conformis) were significantly female-biased, whereas male bias was found in 1 species (Synosternus cleopatrae).

In general, the sex ratio of fleas collected from an individual rodent did not differ significantly from the sex ratio in the entire flea population.

The second variety is the Oriental rat flea (Xenopsylla Cheopis), which is the more common human plague vector.

Rat flea life cycle. Both Xenopsylla Cheopis and Nosopsyllus Fasciatus begin life as small white eggs, typically found around animal bedding and rat dwellings.

The larvae that hatch from the eggs are approximately to 3 mm long. A detailed account is given of laboratory investigations, most of which were carried out in andon the biology of fleas, chiefly those that are found on steppe rodents in the endemic plague region in the south-east of European Russia.

The species dealt with were: Ceratophyllus fasciatus[Nosopsyllus fasciatus], Bosc, which usually occurs on rats; Leptopsylla segnis, Schönh. Northern Rat Flea. Northern rat flea (Nosopsyllus fasciatus) This species is found on domestic rats and house mice throughout North America and Europe, but is most common in temperate regions.

The northern rat flea has occasionally been taken from wild rodents. It will also feed on humans. Nosopsyllus fasciatus (rat flea, a rat flea) on 12 Jul at OSGR: SU56 in Berks, England. Nosopsyllus fasciatus, the northern rat flea, is a species of flea found on domestic rats and house mice.

Northern rat fleas are external parasites, living by hematophagy off the blood of rodents. It is the most widely spread of its genus, having originated in Europe, but has been transported to temperate regions all over the world.

Northern Rat Flea (Nosopsyllus fasciatus) This is a common flea of domestic rats, especially in temperate and northern regions of the world. Although it will bite humans and can transmit several zoonotic pathogens such as the agents of plague and murine typhus, it is far less important in this respect than the Oriental rat flea.
