So glad to hear you found it interesting. How does this compare with the types of information you're studying?

I'm astonished to find such an in-depth piece on the exact subject I'm currently researching. I recently became curious about how fleas and other ectoparasites made their way into scientific and medical research and when were they established as dangerous disease vectors. I find it quite interesting that they were even taking the phase of the moon into account!
