Fleas are trained not to jump by keeping them in a container with a lid. Once trained, they are harnessed by carefully wrapping a thin gold wire around the neck of the flea. Once in the harness the fleas usually stay in it for life. The harnesses are attached to the props and the strong legs of the flea allows them to move objects significantly larger than themselves.
Given an adequate supply of food, larvae should pupate and weave a silken cocoon within 1-2 weeks after 3 larval stages. After another week or two the adult flea is fully developed and ready to emerge from the cocoon.
If an insect goes up your nose at night, and gets swallowed, before you can blow it out, what are the chances of a pregnant flea being destroyed by your hydrochloric acid in your stomach before it does any damage to you?
On your podcasts you have said that it is the female mosquito which bites. Is it also the female flea that bites?
