    They eat ticks for sure, but just about any type of bug. I don't know if they eat fleas, but they are bugs, so idk.

    If you have mosquitos very badly you should put a bat house on your property. Bats eat mosquitos [​IMG]

    YES ! They eat fleas, mosquitoes, flies, anything. Two years after I got mine, I noticed a marked decrease in both mosquitoes and flies. No other bugs could live wher they are either. If you have honey bees, guineas will wipe them out also. Be sure you can handle themin your area........Pop
