This book summarises worldwide research activities at laboratory and farm levels to control the poultry red mites. Forty-three experts from 11 countries have been drawn to present new control methods based on plants, predators or vaccine developments together with updated chemical, physical and managerial approaches to tackle this ubiquitous ectoparasite which is responsible for economic losses to the poultry industry and for human health-related problems. Genetic and metabolomic diversity within the mite populations highlights 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.
