Image #   23065A
Name:   Sticktight flea (Echidnophaga gallinacea)
Copyright:   Copyright 2003 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Sticktight flea (Echidnophaga gallinacea). This flea attaches firmly to its host, often causing ulcers. The female flea remains attached for the rest of her life, sucking blood and laying eggs in the ulcers. Larvae hatch and go through a life cycle similar to that of the cat flea. The larvae fall off the host, then pupate and collect in the environment, where they can infect otheranimals. The sticktight flea flea attacks cats, dogs poultry and many other animals, including humans. While sticktight fleas are not known to transmit any diseases, their attachment can lead to secondary infections.
