ECTOPARASITES OF GRAY SQUIRRELS IN TWO DIFFERENT HABITATS AND SCREENING OF SELECTED ECTOPARASITES FOR BARTONELLAE
- Environmental Science, BiologyThe Journal of parasitology
Gray squirrels, Sciurus carolinensis, were livetrapped in 2 different habitat types, woodland (67 squirrels) and parkland (53 squirrels), in southeastern Georgia and selected ectoparasites from this study were screened for bartonellae, suggesting that fleas, or lice, or both, might be vectors of bartoneLLae between squirrels.
