Abstract

Parasites are a problem wherever poultry are raised, either in large poultry infrastructures or small backyard flocks, and are responsible for economic losses that can be significant. This chapter will discuss the most economically important parasites, all having a negative impact on egg production and egg quality. However, it will mostly focus on the red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, because of its outstanding negative impact on animal health, welfare and production. The authors will review different aspects including biology of red mites and new insights of its control.
