An island republic in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is Nicosia. It was colonized by the Phoenicians and ancient Greeks and ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine Empires. It was under various countries from the 12th to the 20th century but became independent in 1960. The name comes from the Greek Kupros, probably representing the Sumerian kabar or gabar, copper, famous in historic times for its copper mines. The cypress tree is also named after the island. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p308 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p134)
An independent state consisting of three islands in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily. Its capital is Valetta. The major island is Malta, the two smaller islands are Comino and Gozo. It was a Phoenician and Carthaginian colony, captured by the Romans in 218 B.C. It was overrun by Saracens in 870, taken by the Normans in 1090, and subsequently held by the French and later the British who allotted them a dominion government in 1921. It became a crown colony in 1933, achieving independence in 1964. The name possibly comes from a pre-Indoeuropean root mel, high, referring to its rocks, but a more picturesque origin derives the name from the Greek melitta or melissa, honey, with reference to its early fame for its honey production.

Development of microsatellites for genetic analyses and population assignment of the cat flea (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae). (1/30)

Cat fleas, Ctenocephalidesfelis (Bouche) (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae), are common ectoparasites of companion animals that negatively impact their hosts directly by causing dermatitis and blood loss during feeding and indirectly through the potential transmission of disease causing agents. We isolated and characterized seven novel microsatellite loci from a partial genomic library of the cat flea enriched for di-, tri-, and tetranucleotide repeats. We screened these loci in cat fleas from two laboratory colonies and one wild-caught population collected at a temporary animal shelter (Parker coliseum) in Baton Rouge, LA. Six loci were polymorphic, with two to 15 alleles per locus and an average observed heterozygosity of 0.21 across populations. Although the two laboratory cat flea colonies were isolated from each other for many years, they did not significantly differ in their genotypic composition. The cat flea population from Parker coliseum was genetically different from the laboratory colonies, but also showed high degrees of inbreeding. Multilocus genotypes of the polymorphic loci were sufficient to assign over 85% of cat fleas to their population of origin. Genetic markers for flea population identity will allow further studies to examine the origins and movement of cat fleas with important genetic traits such as insecticide resistance or pathogen susceptibility. The use of microsatellites also could determine if there are host-specific strains of cat fleas and add insight into the development of the different subspecies of C. felis.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy on dogs of a single topical treatment with the pioneer fipronil/(S)-methoprene and an oral treatment with spinosad against Ctenocephalides felis. (4/30)

In the study reported here, the pioneer fipronil/(S)-methoprene topical product (Frontline(R) Plus, Merial Limited, Duluth, GA) was compared to the oral spinosad product (Comfortis(R) Elanco, Greenfield, IN) for efficacy against adult fleas and preventing egg production. The product presentations, doses and labelling were the one applicable in the USA. Using a standard protocol, 200 cat fleas of mixed sex were applied to dogs on Days 1, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42. Dogs were combed to remove fleas 24 hours post-infestation, the fleas were counted, collected, and then reapplied to each dog following completion of their respective count. At 48 hours post-infestation, comb counts were performed and fleas were removed. No fleas were collected from any dog in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group at any 24 or 48 hours post-infestation assessment throughout the six weeks study, yielding a preventive efficacy of 100%. For the spinosad treatment, efficacy was 100% at 24 hours and 48 hours through Day 16, and thereafter declined. The results observed in the spinosad-treated dogs were highly variable between animals. At the 24 and 48 hours counts following the Day 21 infestation, only five of eight spinosad-treated dogs (62.5%) were flea-free. Following the Day 28 infestation, spinosad efficacy fell to 85% and 89%, for the 24 hours and 48 hours counts, and only two dogs (25%) were flea free, compared to 100% flea-free dogs in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group. No fleas were collected from the fipronil/(S)-methoprene treated dogs throughout the entire study, therefore, no eggs were collected at any time from any dog in the group. However, in the spinosad group adult fleas were found on dogs starting on Day 21 and by Day 30, 42 eggs were collected from one dog that had 107 adult fleas counted at 48 hours. At Day 37 and Day 49, more than 100 eggs were collected from each dog in the spinosad-treated and control groups.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy on dogs of a single topical treatment with fipronil/(S)-methoprene or weekly physiological hygiene shampoos against Ctenocephalides felis in a simulated flea-infested environment. (8/30)

Flea infestations of pets continue to persist due to the lack of knowledge of flea biology and ecology. It is not unusual that pet owners believe regular hygiene, such as shampooing their dogs can replace regular insecticidal treatment. The objective of this study was to compare in a flea simulated environment, modelling exposure similar to that found in a home, that the use of regular physiological shampoo does not control fleas adequately when compared to a long acting topical formulation. Three groups of six dogs were formed: one untreated control group, one group treated monthly with the topical formulation of fipronil/(S)-methoprene, and a third group treated weekly with a hygiene shampoo. All dogs were infested with adult unfed Ctenocephalides felis fleas (200+/-5) on Days -28 and -21. Each animal's sleeping box was fitted with a plastic cup mounted to the inside roof of the box. The sleeping bench of each animal was covered with a carpet to accommodate flea development. The dogs were maintained in their kennels throughout the study. In order to maintain the environmental flea challenge, C. felis pupae (100+/-5) were placed in the plastic cup in each animal's sleeping box on Days -14, -7, 0, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42. The dogs were combed and fleas counted weekly on Days -1, 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, 38, 45, and 51. The fleas were placed immediately back on the dogs. On Day 60, fleas were counted and removed. Flea infestations in the untreated control group at each count averaged between 46.2 and 74.2 fleas throughout the study. The average number of fleas infesting dogs was significantly different (p<0.05) between the untreated and the two treatment groups and between the two treatment groups at all counts throughout the two months study (Days 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, 38, 45, 51 and 60). The efficacy was never below 99.1% in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group, and efficacy in the shampoo group was never above 79.2%. Weekly shampooing in treatment group 3 was intentionally delayed after Day 42, to evaluate wether missing a weekly bath would affect the flea population. The Day 48 data indicate that forgetting or delaying a single weekly shampooing resulted in a clear increase in flea numbers and a significant decrease in efficacy from 68.2% to 34.8%. The fipronil(S)/methoprene treatment allowed a continuous control as demonstrated by the high efficacy against fleas, and also the number of flea-free dogs on seven of the nine weekly assessments, in spite of what was essentially a continuous flea challenge model.  (+info)

Two studies were conducted to evaluate and compare the efficacy of imidacloprid + moxidectin and selamectin topical solutions against the KS1 flea strain infesting cats. In both studies the treatment groups were comprised of non-treated controls, 6%

What Are Fleas and Ticks? Fleas and ticks are external parasites that can cause extreme discomfort for your pet and can also cause serious diseases.. Fleas. Fleas are insects that are ubiquitous in the environment-meaning they can be found almost everywhere. There are more than 2000 species of fleas, but the common cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) is the one that most commonly afflicts dogs and cats.. A disease of concern that can be caused by fleas is flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), which is a severe allergic reaction to flea bites. Some pets are so allergic that even a single bite can cause a reaction. FAD makes pets miserable. In severe cases, it can cause severe itching and inflammation that, if left untreated, can lead to excessive scratching and chewing that can damage the skin. Secondary bacterial or fungal infections can develop as a result.. Fleas can also play a role in transmitting parasites, such as tapeworms, and bacterial diseases, such as cat scratch fever (bartonellosis), to ...
Prior to the publication of A comparison of jump performances of the dog flea, Ctenocephalides canis (Curtis, 1826) and the cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis felis (Bouché, 1835) (M.-C. Cadiergues, C. Joubert, M. Franc; 2000), most performance measurements for fleas were performed with the oriental rat flea (Xenopsylla cheopis), which is well-known for being the primary vector for the bubonic plague. The authors dont explain why they conducted this research, but the fact that their lab had been maintaining a colony of cat fleas on cats and dog fleas on dogs for years makes the decision sound like it came on a particularly boring Saturday morning, after a night of heavy drinking.. They put together an experimental setup for horizontal jump measurements: sticky plastic, and for vertical jump measurements: vertical cylindric tubes of varying height. They measured the horizontally leaped distances for nine hundred different fleas, and the vertically leaped distances for one thousand and five ...
Specifically, positive fleas were found from both dogs and cats in all four provinces of north-eastern Italy, from dogs in two provinces of south-western Italy (Naples and Caserta), whereas all fleas from Bari province (southeastern) were negative (Table 1).. Fleas from cats showed a tendency (Fishers exact test; p = 0.068) to be more positive (17.6%) than fleas from dogs (10.2%). Male and female fleas showed a similar rate of infection (11.6% and 8.9%, respectively). Prevalence of R. felis among areas and within provinces of the same area was extremely variable, ranging from 0 to 35.3% (Table 1). In general and excluding fleas from Bari province (a single site of sampling) prevalence in north-eastern Italy (23.2%) was significantly higher than in south-western Italy (7.1%) (χ2 test = 14.956; p , 0.01).. Our results indicate that R. felis is present in C. felis fleas from several geographical locations of Italy. The occurrence of R. felis-positive fleas from dogs and cats in north-eastern and ...
OBJECTIVES. The systemic flea adulticide nitenpyram was shown to reach 100% efficacy within 3 hours of treatment in cats. Rapid elimination of fleas is especially important in pets suffering from Flea Allergy Dermatitis to reduce exposure to allergens in the flea saliva. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy of nitenpyram during the first three hours following treatment at the recommended dose of a minimum of 1mg/kg b.w.. MATERIALS. 15 cats were infested with 100 unfed adult fleas 24 hours before administration of CAPSTAR. Subgroups of 3 cats were combed at 15, 30, 60, 120 and 180 minutes after treatment. Efficacy was calculated against flea counts performed at the same time intervals on subgroups of 3 cats of an untreated control group consisting of 15 cats also.. RESULTS. Efficacy after 15 minutes was 42.5% with a high variability between individuals (SD: 31.4). After 30 minutes between animal variability decreased and efficacy in cats increased to 62.0% (SD: 13.0). ...
The cat flea belongs to the insect order Siphonaptera (Ancient Greek siphono- tube or siphon + a not + ptera wing, the tube-drinking wingless insects) which in its adult stage is an obligatory hematophage. Adults of both sexes range from 1-2 mm long and are usually a reddish-brown colour, although the abdomens of gravid females often swell with eggs causing them to appear banded in cream and dark brown. Like all fleas, the cat flea is compressed laterally allowing it to slip between the sometimes dense hairs of its host just above the top layer of the skin, resulting in an extremely thin insect that may be difficult to observe even if the hosts coat is pure white.[3]. The cat flea affects both the cat and the dog worldwide.[4] The cat flea can also maintain its life cycle on other carnivores and on omnivores, but these are only chosen when more acceptable hosts become unavailable.[3] Adult cat fleas do not willingly leave their hosts, and inter-animal transfer of adult fleas is rare ...
Eliminate fleas on your pet. Even if you are able to get rid of all the fleas in your home, your pet may bring the eggs and adult insects right back inside. For starters, a simple bath with soap and water is an easy way to drown the existing adult fleas. Another easy way to eliminate fleas quickly is the chemical nitenpyram, which is more commonly known as Capstar. When the pill is given to your cat or dog, all adult fleas on the animal will start dying with 30 minutes. Each dose is effective for 24 hours.. A good grooming with a flea comb is another option for removing adult fleas. Remember to dip the comb frequently in soapy water to kill the insects. Finally, a flea dip or rinse is another way to kill fleas but can only be used for dogs. Sprays formulated for use on cats or dogs are also effective.. ...

Lufenuron is classified as an insect development inhibitor. This chemical is also found in the dog flea medication Program and is primarily designed to disrupt the reproductive capabilities of female adult fleas. Lufenuron is essentially stored in the dogs subcutaneous layer of fat. When adult fleas bite the dog, they eventually suck Lufenuron into their own bloodstream and transfer the chemical to their growing eggs. Some of the Lufenuron are also distributed to feeding larvae.. Technically, what Lufenuron does is that it prevents the flea larvae from producing chitin which is a very important ingredient for the development of a very sturdy and very resilient outer shell. Because there is no outer protective covering for the developing larvae, its internal organs are essentially exposed to the outside air where dehydration can hasten the rate of its demise. This occurs right upon hatching or the shedding of the larvaes old and smaller outer shell.. Because Lufenuron inhibits the production or ...

Although this value falls within the classification category of harmful by inhalation (R20), higher concentrations of dinotefuran in the respirable range were not technically feasible after extensive atmosphere development. Since neither clinical signs of toxicity nor deaths occurred at the highest technically achievable concentration, it is considered that dinotefuran does not require classification in the EU under the provisions of Commission Directive 93/21/EEC, Annex VI (1993), and no risk phrase is required in respect of exposure by inhalation ...

Rickettsia felis, the causative agent of flea-borne spotted fever, occurs on all continents except Antarctica, owing to the cosmopolitan distribution of its cat flea vector. In this study, cat fleas were collected in two countries where the occurrence of R. felis was either unknown (Malta) or where accurate prevalence data were lacking (Israel). Altogether 129 fleas were molecularly analysed for the presence of rickettsial DNA. On the basis of three genetic markers, R. felis was identified in 39.5% (15/38) of the cat fleas from Malta. Sequences showed 100% identity to each other and to relevant sequences in GenBank. Among the 91 cat fleas from Israel, two (2.2%) contained the DNA of Candidatus Rickettsia senegalensis. Phylogenetically, the R. felis and Candidatus R. senegalensis identified here clustered separately (with high support) but within one clade, which was a sister group to that formed by the typhus group and spotted fever group rickettsiae. This is the first record of R. felis in ...

Ectoparasites are often difficult to detect in the field. We developed a method that can be used with occupancy models to estimate the prevalence of ectoparasites on hosts, and to investigate factors that influence rates of ectoparasite occupancy while accounting for imperfect detection. We describe the approach using a study of fleas (Siphonaptera) on black-tailed prairie dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus). During each primary occasion (monthly trapping events), we combed a prairie dog three consecutive times to detect fleas (15 s/combing). We used robust design occupancy modeling to evaluate hypotheses for factors that might correlate with the occurrence of fleas on prairie dogs, and factors that might influence the rate at which prairie dogs are colonized by fleas. Our combing method was highly effective; dislodged fleas fell into a tub of water and could not escape, and there was an estimated 99.3% probability of detecting a flea on an occupied host when using three combings. While overall ...

If youre aware of a flea problem, you may have already treated your dog to kill adult fleas that are biting him. However, if you did not also treat your home and wash and vacuum pet bedding and resting areas, you only did half of the job. Treating the pet has no effect on immature fleas.

Eliminating the larvae, along with treating the pet, should break the flea cycle..

For more information, see our Flea Elimination service page and these blogs:. ...

Larval cat fleas are about 3/16 inch in length and resemble tiny, white, hairy caterpillars.

Other people, as well as pets, may experience fleabite allergic dermatitis, resulting in more ...

Flea Medication: A Buying Guide The control of fleas has grown immensely over the years. A wide range of fleas controlling products are available in the market, and they range from pills to topical formulations. Pet owners are even confused by the various available products. In the mid 1990s, program (Lufenuron) flea medicine was introduced. It was introduced to control fleas in pets, and the medication came in the form of a pill. Although program medication had some successes, its method of action had a lot of limitation. The medication worked by preventing larvae from hatching. Adult fleas, however, were not killed by the chemical. The flea was given time to die a natural death before a pet be could flee from the parasite. The next popular medication to be introduced was the sentinel which was made of both heartworm prevention and Lufenuron. Both program and sentinel medication, however, have not been able to efficiently control adult fleas. introduction of more effective medications has been ...

Few insect pests are as well suited for survival in the modern world as the flea. Its life is nasty and brutish, but far from short enough to please the humans and animals that find themselves sharing a home with these tiny bloodsuckers. Adult fleas spend most of their time in carpets and upholstery, only jumping onto your pets (or you) when reproducing. A female flea needs a drink of blood before she can lay eggs, which are then usually laid directly on the host animal. (Keep reading. It gets better.) Flea eggs are round and light-colored. They are not attached to the infested dog or cat in any way, and they quickly roll off. Because of this, your pets favorite resting place is also likely to be your homes main flea nursery. The eggs hatch within a few days of laying. The emerging larvae look like white worms, though theyre too small to be easily seen by the naked eye. Larvae live in floor cracks, carpets, upholstered furniture and pet bedding. They can eat (and thrive on) virtually any all
Flea Allergy (Flea Allergy Dermatitis). Flea allergy dermatitis or FAD is the most common allergy affecting both dogs and cats. Many animals have flea infestations with minimal to no skin disease, while animals with FAD can have profound skin disease with the presence of very few fleas. The allergy is caused by an individual patients hypersensitivity to the flea saliva and it only takes a few bites to induce the problem. For this reason, very regular flea control is essential to help keep FAD animals symptom-free. The itching and skin disease associated with flea allergy is most commonly distributed around the base of the tail, along the back, down the back legs and on the stomach. Hair loss or thinning is often present in those areas and the skin may be red, crusty and have red bumps called papules. The goal to prevent the itchiness associated with FAD is regular flea control. But, sometimes in order to control severe itchiness we may recommend oral steroids. This will depend on the severity ...

Activyl contains a highly efficacious agent: indoxacarb. Activyl is unique because indoxacarb was designed as a pro-insecticide-that requires biological or metabolic activation, also known as bioactivation, in susceptible insects to convert it to its highly insecticidal form-thus enhancing its selective toxicity.1 In addition, indoxacarb works at a site of action in the flea different from other commercialized insecticides used for flea control. The indoxacarb in Activyl is bioactivated in the flea by enzymatic N-decarbomethoxylation changing it to a more active, highly insecticidal metabolite.1. ...

I wont stop until Ive had every hartzguard product removed from the shelves of every store that carries this leathal and toxic product, starting with my hometown of Shreveport, LA.

I took the sheets and pillow cases off my bed and washed them and sprayed my pillow top mattress, my pillows and the under side of my bedspread (I didnt do the top for fear it might leave spots on the satin material). The following day Sophie didnt seem herself. She slept way more than usual and seemed especially needy. That was the only difference Ive seen in my cat.
