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.

Arthropods are one of the most concerning threats in poultry industries due to both direct and indirect pathogenic effects. One of the most important arthropods affecting poultry production is in the genus Dermanyssus (Acari: Dermanyssidae) with Dermanyssus gallinae (De Geer) the most important (Fletcher and Axtell 1991; Maurer and Baumga rtner 1992). Dermanyssus gallinae, also known as poultry red mite or red mite is a direct pest becauseitisanobligatoryblood-suckingparasite;itisonthebirdonlyto feedfor30-60 min and to spend the rest of the time concealed in cracks and crevices or in the litter. Its eggs are laid in the hiding places and hatch into six-legged larvae in 2-3 days. The chicken mite is seldom seen on the birds because of its intermittent feeding at night but skin lesions (especially on the breast and lower legs) are evidence of the feeding (Baker 1999).
