    Default Fleas on Bunnies

    For the first time in 20 years I found a flea on a bunny. Huge jack! But I had three in the bag. I guess it is time to start field stripping them before I bring them home. Area got washed with Dawn and sprayed with Clorox. Only saw two in the bag I had the bunnies in but it doesn't take many to start problems. I use a pack to carry them but always put the bunnies in a garbage bag before putting it in the pack.

    Hillary moved to NY and I moved out.

    Before the die off here around Soldotna the ones we were getting were covered with them. There were lots of them on the last Lynx I got too.

    I have not seen many, just my first ones. It was almost 50 the other day hunting and summer seems to be lingering on. I started cleaning them outside now.

    I've found em before. And I almost always find them on my lynx. I don't think they go for dogs up here though. Different species of flea I think. But I always put my predators in a bag with raid overnight before I skin em.

    The ones I used to snare around Glennallen usually had them.
