Contents Notes
Control of poultry mites: where do we stand? -- Prevalence and key figures for the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae infections in poultry farm systems -- Evaluation of the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae (Acari: Dermanyssidae) susceptibility to some acaricides in field populations from Italy -- Exploration of the susceptibility of AChE from the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae (Acari: Mesostigmata) to organophosphates in field isolates from France -- In vitro efficacies of oils, silicas and plant preparations against the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae -- Variation in chemical composition and acaricidal activity against Dermanyssus gallinae of four eucalyptus essential oils -- Inert dusts and their effects on the poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) -- Candidate predators for biological control of the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae -- The testing of antibodies raised against poultry red mite antigens in an in vitro feeding assay; preliminary screen for vaccine candidates -- The poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae): a potential vector of pathogenic agents -- Endosymbiotic bacteria living inside the poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) -- Molecular phylogenetic assessment of host range in five Dermanyssus species -- Phylogenetic relationship between Dermanyssus gallinae populations in European countries based on mitochondrial COI gene sequences -- Monitoring of Dermanyssus gallinae in free-range poultry farms -- Preventing introduction and spread of Dermanyssus gallinae in poultry facilities using the HACCP method. This book summarises worldwide research activities at laboratory and farm levels to control the poultry red mites. 43 experts from 11 countries have been drawn into to present new control methods based on plants, predators or vaccine developments alongside updated chemical, physical and managerial approaches to tackle this ubiquitous ectoparasite which is responsible for economic costs for the poultry industry and for human health-related problems. Genetic and metabolomic diversity within the mite populations highlight the needs for an integrated approach for the poultry industry. Readers will understand the state-of-art in new research lines which could bring this worldwide and emerging ectoparasite under control.
