The haematophagous poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) is the most important pest of egg laying hens in many parts of the world. Control has often relied on chemical pesticides, but inert dusts, which are thought to kill target hosts primarily by desiccation, have become one of the most commonly applied alternative control methods for poultry red mite in Europe. This development has occurred despite a lack of knowledge of the efficacy of the different types of inert dusts and how this is… Expand
Management of the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, using silica-based acaricides
TLDR
The experiments in a commercial chicken farm showed that it is possible to control the mite population for a period of 46 weeks by using physically effective SiO2-based products, and these products are therefore an effective alternative to the use of chemical acaricides. Expand
ACARICIDAL ACTIVITY OF INERT POWDERS AGAINST THE POULTRY RED MITE DERMANYSSUS GALLINAE (DE GEER, 1778) (MESOSTIGMATA: DERMANYSSIDAE)
Dermanyssus gallinae is one of the most important ectoparasite of laying hens. The intensive use of chemicals has led to the selection of resistant mite populations. The difficulty in controlling theExpand
Opportunities for integrated pest management to control the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae
TLDR
This paper will review the available and emerging techniques for D. gallinae control and discuss which techniques might be suitable for inclusion in an integrated management programme (e.g. synthetic acaricides and diatomaceous earths). Expand
Characterization, mode of action, and efficacy of twelve silica-based acaricides against poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) in vitro
TLDR
The acaricidal efficacy of 12 products containing natural or synthetic silica, 9 in powder form, and 3 for liquid application was tested under laboratory conditions and characterizations were carried out in order to explain the differences in efficacy. Expand
Significance and control of the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae.
TLDR
It is concluded that significant advances in D. gallinae control are most likely to come through an integrated approach adopting recent research into existing and novel control strategies; this is being combined with improved monitoring and modeling to better inform treatment interventions. Expand
Dermanyssus gallinae still poses a serious threat for the rearing of laying hens
TLDR
One of the actions which should be jointly implemented by specialists from various fields is the construction of sheds to hinder the settlement of the parasite and to facilitate its liquidation. Expand
Repellent activity of desiccant dusts and conidia of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana when tested against poultry red mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) in laboratory experiments
TLDR
This is the first time a member of Acari has been shown to be repelled by desiccant dusts and by conidia of an entomopathogenic fungus. Expand
Understanding the biology and control of the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae: a review
TLDR
This work reviews the current body of literature describing red mite biology and discusses how this has been, or could be, used to develop methods to control PRM infestations and explores areas of PRM biology which have to date received little or no study but have the potential to offer new control targets. Expand
THE CONTROL PROGRAM OF RED POULTRY MITE (DERMANYSSUS GALLINAE), TODAY
Dermanyssus gallinae control has so far been predominantly based on acaricides (insecticides) and their efficacy has been decreasing in time due to the development of resistance. D. gallinae is aExpand
Effect of plant essential oils as acaricides against the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, with special focus on exposure time.
TLDR
Thyme essential may be useful in control of this pest and may make for an effective acaricide even if the residual toxicity of this product is low, if employed as part of an integrated pest management approach. Expand

Silicas for control of the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae
TLDR
Diatomaceous earth (DE) without acaricides was at least as effective as DE supplemented with pyrethrum or essential oils and a liquid formulation of silica in vitro and the liquid formulation had a very good residual effect over several weeks. Expand
Prevalence of the poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, in different types of production systems for egg layers in Sweden.
TLDR
This study was undertaken between May and December 1994 to investigate the prevalence of hematophagous mites in Sweden and found the only mite species found was the red poultry mite, Dermanyssus gallinae. Expand
Influence of Dermanyssus gallinae and Ascaridia galli infections on behaviour and health of laying hens (Gallus gallus domesticus)
TLDR
Investigation of the effect of infections with Dermanyssus gallinae and Ascaridia galli on the behaviour and health of laying hens found mite-infected hens showed higher self-grooming and head scratching both during the day and night and A. galli resulted in a lower weight gain but no significant changes were seen in blood variables or behavioural activities. Expand
Laboratory studies evaluating the efficacy of diatomaceous earths, on treated surfaces, against stored-product insect and mite pests
TLDR
The Silico-sec® dry dust was the most effective treatment with mean mortalities ranging from 93–100% for all the pest species at all doses and with both DEs the slurry applications were generally less effective than the dry dusts at equivalent doses. Expand
Long term dynamics of Dermanyssus gallinae in relation to mite control measures in aviary systems for layers
TLDR
It was demonstrated that the mite populations were significantly denser in summer than in winter, while in flocks with brown hens, mites gathered at the lower tiers, whereas they were found at the highest tiers in association with white hens. Expand
Resistance of the red poultry mite to pyrethroids in France
The resistance of Dermanyssus gallinae, the red poultry mite, to a pyrethroid acaricide, permethrin, and to an organophosphate, dichlorvos, was examined on five French poultry farms which hadExpand
The effect of a diatomaceous earth formulation on the larvae of Ephestia kuehniella Zeller
TLDR
Diatomaceous earth is a natural product and may be useful in structural treatment of cracks and crevices in mills producing flour “organically”, and also in conventional mills when prohibition of methyl bromide takes effect. Expand
The poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae (De Geer, 1778): current situation and future prospects for control.

TLDR
The current importance of Dermanyssus gallinae, mainly in egg layer, in Europe is pointed out and alternative control methods such as feeding deterrents or biological control, are reviewed in the context of poultry pest management. Expand
Detection of Salmonella sp. in Dermanyssus gallinae using an FTA® filter‐based polymerase chain reaction
TLDR
Mites sampled from one farm of each type were positive for Salmonella, suggesting that Dermanyssus could act as a reservoir between flocks, and it will be necessary to carry out a large‐scale study to assess the role of D. gallinae in the epidemiology of avian salmonellosis. Expand
Small bin trials to determine the effectiveness of acid-activated kaolin against four species of beetles infesting paddy under tropical storage conditions
TLDR
Control of populations of Rhyzopertha dominica, Sitophilus oryzae, Tribolium castaneum and Oryzaephilus surinamensis infesting paddy treated with acid-activated kaolin or with pirimiphos-methyl diluted with AAK gave progressively lower mortality of R. dominica and less suppression of progeny development in 7 day bioassays than the other treatments.
