Yes, I know! It’s lame to argue on the internet. Even more lame to argue about the size of turds. BUT, discussion forums are a shortcut to notoriety for me. Not in the sense that I’m getting my name out for potential clients but a much bigger goal of getting in key words and back links for a few of my websites which in turn makes my domains relevant to google, bing, and yahoo SEO, and therefore; rank on the first page at the top spot. Which in turn makes our phones absolutely ring of the hook. I.E. this link to my Environmental Business. Google Charlotte Asbestos Removal and you’ll find me somewhere on the first page. As you will find all twelve of my websites ranked first in the organic listings and or the map listings, or both.

Anyway, for the second time in two days I’ve had internet pest control operators argue their opinion against my facts. Their source? Obviously their imaginations. My source; the horse’s mouth, aka “Mallis Handbook of Pest Control”.  It’s hard to argue with the Bible of the Pest Control Industry and its obvious this Texan representing McGrath Pest Control out of Texas hasn’t seen the size of the American Roaches roaming the Carolinas.  Maybe American Roaches are Cowboy fans and left Texas back when America’s Team Sprinted into eternal irrelevance (Circa 1996). Regardless, this Cowboy from McGrath Pest Control was wrong. (You’re welcome for the backlink Mr. McGrath). Please reciprocate – Envirosafe Termite & Pest

I’ve posted the dialogue from the discussion. Please feel free to chime in with your thoughts or questions.

This past summer a customer of ours in Lake Wylie, South Carolina had us come out to her home to perform a flea treatment in her yard for a moderately heavy infestation of fleas. The fleas were everywhere in the yard area. Their lot is nestled on a wooded lot in River Hills on a cove partially overlooking the lake. There is abundant wildlife including racoons and opossums that frequent her yard. Additionally there are squirrels and feral cats that roam her property. She has no pets.

The lady’s child had contracted tapeworms (flat segmented worms that live in the intestines of some animals and grow up to 50 feet long) she was curious as to whether her little girls exposure to the fleas or flea bites may have been causative of the tapeworms. Tapeworms are commonly contracted by humans through consumption of undercooked beef or raw fish. According to the mother, this little girl had not eaten any undercooked fish or beef.  After researching the internet, I found this dialogue where someone asks if you can contract tapeworms by accidentally swallowing a flea. Yahoo Answers.Com. This place made me embarrassed to have my computer plugged in to a telephone line. A sorry collection of slope-browed bottom feeders, all gathering to vomit their two cents worth oblivious to the fact they haven’t a clue. I almost chimed in but didn’t really want to interact with these people more than humanly possible, as I felt it would only increase the revulsion I had for these mouth breathing tools to the point where I actually vomited onto my keyboard. See the stupidity below for yourselves….

After losing a few IQ points from the likes of Pelle K, who claims to be a Doctor, I decided to to a little more research to see if anything more substantial could be found on this issue. Unbelievable, but after reading through the Ectoparasite section of pest control‘s most revered reference book, “Mallis Handbook of Pest Control”, there it was in the first paragraph on page 519. “Flea larvae consume tapeworm eggs and tapeworm development occurs within the flea. If a tapeworm-containing flea is consumed by a dog or a cat during grooming, the tapeworm breaks out of the flea in the animal’s gut and attaches to the intestinal wall. Similarly, humans can be infested by inadvertently swallowing fleas, as might happen with small children.”

So, the answer is obviously yes! It is a most definite possibility that this little girl accidentally swallowed a flea while playing in the yard and contracted tapeworm.
