Fleas, lice and mites were collected from 24 and 120 scrub hares at Pafuri and Skukuza, Northern and
Eastern Transvaal, respectively, in the Kruger National Park, and from 34 scrub hares in the Hluhluwe
region, north-eastern KwaZulu-Natal. Ctenocephalides felis damarensis, the only flea recovered, reached
peak burdens on the hares at each locality during late winter or spring. Juvenile hares harboured
significantly fewer fleas than did adult animals. The lice Haemodipsus lyriocephalus and Haemodipsus
setoni were collected from hares at each locality, with H. setoni generally being the most abundant.
Listrophorus leporicolus was found on hares at Skukuza and Hluhluwe, and mites of the genus Cheyletiella
were collected from hares at Skukuza.
