CONTROL METHODS OF THE RED CHICKEN MITE
One of the most dangerous ectoparasites that infects poultry is the red chicken mite (Dermanyssus gallinae), which causes dermanisiosis, which is widespread in many countries around the world, including all regions of Ukraine. The article shows the basic biological and ecological characteristics of the red chicken mite Dermanyssus gallinae.
- gallinae is a carrier of infectious and viral diseases including: Salmonella gallinarum, Salmonella enteritidis, Chlamydia spp., Borrelia anserine rhusiopathiae, Listeria monocytogenes, Coxiella burnetii, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus sрр., Marek's disease, Newcastle disease and other dangerous poultry diseases.
- gallinae causes significant economic damage due to reduced egg productivity, quality of poultry products and increased culling and death of poultry due to depletion.
The article analyzes the market of insecticides registered in Ukraine for the control of red mites. The effectiveness of preventive and curative measures in the battle against D. gallinae largely depends on the method and desacarization medication. Among the existing methods of control against D. gallinae remains chemical because synthetic insecticides have a wide range of action, while destroying a number of pests from different groups at different stages of development.
To prevent outbreaks and spread of mites in poultry farms, it is necessary to systematically implement a set of organizational and veterinary measures, taking into account the biological characteristics of the development of existing ectoparasites in the farm and technological cycles of poultry.
