Every year, with the advent of warm weather, trouble is experienced from what are popularly known as "sand fleas." The fallacy of this name, however, cannot be too firmly stressed, for all fleas favour a warm-blooded host and are quite incapable of surviving and reproducing in sand without periodic supplies of blood from a suitable animal.
