Working group 2: End users (One Health)-interdisciplinary approach

This working group, industry led, will develop 'Gold Standards' for poultry red mite control, also confirming the full potential of poultry red mites to poultry and other sectors.

Specific objectives:

  • i. Produce guidelines for prevention (leaflets), surveillance and control (chemical/nonchemical)
    of poultry red mites produced within the framework of existing Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points procedures.
  • ii. Review the economic and social impact of poultry red mites, and foster further study on poultry red mites in nonavian hosts with medical and veterinary practitioners.

Prevention: checklists to identify the risk factors for introduction and spread of D. gallinae in laying hen facilities. (30.1 KB)

Cross-link questions:

  • What are the impacts of poultry red mites on the poultry industry and beyond? (cross-links between working groups 1 and 2)
  • How can the targeted stakeholders use the findings? (Cross links between working groups 1, 3, 4 and working group 2)
