Effect of temperature on flea survival. A) Cumulative survival of infected fleas maintained at each temperature during the late phase infection period. Averages were calculated for the flea cohorts used in 12 artificial feeding trials. B) Cumulative survival of fleas used in a separate experiment to examine the effects of Y. pestis infection at 10°C.
