The poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae is best known as a threat to the laying-hen industry; adversely affecting production and hen health and welfare throughout the globe, both directly and through its role as a disease vector. Nevertheless, D. gallinae is being increasingly implemented in dermatological complaints in non-avian hosts, suggesting that its significance may extend beyond poultry. The main objective of the current work was to review the potential of D. gallinae as a wider…

Poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) infestation: a broad impact parasitological disease that still remains a significant challenge for the egg-laying industry in Europe
TLDR
It is concluded that effective and sustainable treatment approach to control poultry red mite infestation is urgently required, included integrated pest management.
A case report of Dermanyssus gallinae infestation in three cats.
TLDR
The two kittens showed chronic blood loss which reflects the ability of D. gallinae mites to switch host, and demonstrates that mite infestation is possible even in urban areas, through contact with birds or their abandoned nests.
Red mite — the blight of the poultry world
The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, is a blood feeding parasite of poultry and occasionally other animals and is recognised as one of, if not the most, important ectoparasites in poultry
Poultry red mites in Swedish laying hen flocks
TLDR
Investigation of the occurrence of D. gallinae in laying hen flocks in different housing systems in Sweden by the use of questionnaires and collection of mites in traps found it widespread throughout Sweden and is causing varying degrees of problems for Swedish egg producers and their hens.
Avian mite dermatitis: Diagnostic challenges and unmet needs
TLDR
This report presents the current state of the art and the new developments on PRM‐associated dermatitis, sharing neither the authors’ personal experience nor focusing on differential diagnosis, the outcome of the critical assessment of the available literature by European medical and veterinary experts in the field under the “One Health” approach.
Prevalence of poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) in Korean layer farms and the presence of avian pathogens in the mite
TLDR
It is suggested that repetitive cleaning procedures for the layer farm buildings could decrease the numbers of D. gallinae which may transmit avian pathogens within the farm.
Dermanysuss gallinae attacks humans. Mind the gap!
TLDR
The need for improved recognition of this challenging infestation in humans is stressed, and straightforward recommendations for health practitioners are provided, starting with collection of the correct anamnestic information and including appropriate management methods for case recognition and resolution.
DERMANYSSUS GALLINAE-OVERVIEW : LIFE CYCLE , MORPHOLOGY , PREVALENCE AND CONTROL MEASURES IN POULTRY FARMS
Dermanyssus gallinae or the poultry red mite is currently the most important ectoparasite aff ecting egg-laying hens in several countries causing reduced poultry welfare, mortality and even allergic
Control of Dermanyssus gallinae (De Geer 1778) and other mites with volatile organic compounds, a review
TLDR
Pheromones and kairomones promoting attraction behaviour in D. gallinae and other mite species are presented, while VOCs from essential oils and plant extracts with repellent properties are explored.
Parasitic Mite Fauna in Asian Poultry Farming Systems

Prevalence of the poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) in England
TLDR
This short communication describes a study to obtain information on the prevalence and perceived importance of red mites, the control measures being used and the effectiveness of such measures.
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.
The poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae): a potential vector of pathogenic agents
TLDR
This paper addresses the vector capacity of the ectoparasite with special emphasis on salmonellae, pathogenic agents responsible for many of the most important outbreaks of food-borne diseases worlwide.
The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, a potential vector of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae causing erysipelas in hens
TLDR
Findings imply that D. gallinae is a potential vector of E. rhusiopathiae and causes reoccurring mite problems in poultry facilities once afflicted by this parasite, allowing it to persist in the poultry house between flock cycles as a source of infection for the replacement pullets.
Prevalence and key figures for the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae infections in poultry farm systems
TLDR
The prevalence rates of this poultry pest in different countries and for different farming systems are reviewed and the production parameters which could be linked to this pest proliferation are reviewed.
Red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) prevalence in laying units in Northern England.
TLDR
The aims of this study were to assess the incidence and severity of red mite infestation in laying farms in Northern England, and producer opinions regarding the effectiveness of current control methods.
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.

TLDR
The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, is one of the most important ectoparasites in the poultry industry and can also affect game birds and wild birds and humans, including humans.

TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to describe a cutaneous eruption resulting from Dermanyssus gallinae (the chicken mite) with pigeons acting as the source of the mites.
Dermanyssus gallinae (chicken mite): an underdiagnosed environmental infestation
TLDR
Physicians should be aware that infection with this mite is possible even in patients from urban areas, and it should be included in the differential diagnosis of conditions causing recurrent pruritus unresponsive to standard treatments.
