    Episode 1: Death Cab for Cheopis

    In this very first episode of Infested, we decided to give you a history and biology of the plague menace Xenopsylla cheopis (The rat flea) including some cool details that set it aside from the common fleas we fight off in our homes. We talk a bit about the diseases this flea can carry from back in ancient times to today... maybe right in your backyard!
