enquiring mind, awake and asking here....

last month we used up the last of the donated advantage for flea control...we use it may-nov during the flea season and collect it over the winter months when people are done with their flea control for the year too. i bought 8 boxes of large dog advantage that we can titrate the doses on for cats, bunnies, teeny/or giant dogs. it is the most cost effective way to go.
8 boxes at $ 90 a box...ouch, that's more than $700 for just one month!...sigh, that's a couple of surgeries or a month and a half of barn meds for the sick guys in there. bloody blood sucking fleas man. bad enough that they are a total purposeless species of parasite but they are an expensive useless species too. i wonder...do they actually have some value or purpose that i am missing? are they someone that i should have respect for but don't?
even the mosquitos who drive me insane, feed the frogs, and the spiders, and the bats and the fish. but are fleas even in the food chain anywhere or do they just merrily torment defenseless animals for absolutely no good reason at all, except i guess to survive and breed more?
i am a big one for saying that all life has value. and really, fleas probably value their lives as much as i value mine. but does anyone know, do they ever give anything back? or are they just blood sucking takers every moment of their lives?
enquiring minds want to know...at least i do.
