I've hijacked a couple of posts because of this topic but now I really would like some answers! Among the biggest complaints that I've seen so far, fleas are the biggest reason that people won't drive anything that won't separate them from the critters. And, speaking of critters, I have been told, years ago, that Critter Control stopped their purchase of vans because of fleas.
We have never had a problem with anyone in our employ being flea bitten. ( Well, maybe except for that one hound ) I used to skin out coons that had fleas jumping off of them that were so big that I was considering holding crazy quail shoots. I honestly don't know anyone in Wisconsin that has had any kind of problem with fleas or their bites. Is there a distinct difference in fleas from different parts of the country that they would be a consideration in how close you come to your catches?
