connections between poultry biting lice and microflora.microorganisms were found in about 300 mallophaga ( menopon gallinae, eomenacanthus stramineus , goniocotes gallinae) and 11 host hens. the majority of isolated bacteria was determined as grampositive cocci. the microflora found on the surface of and inside the mallophaga as well as in the samples of hen's skin did not exhibit significant qualitative differences. the internal microflora in mallophaga appeared qualitatively a little poorer than the external. breeding of bacteria from interior tis ...19846721248

ecto-, endo- and haemoparasites in free-range chickens in the goromonzi district in zimbabwe.a cross-sectional study determined the prevalence of ecto-, endo- and haemoparasites in free-range chickens from the goromonzi district, zimbabwe. fifty young and 50 adult birds were selected randomly. all chickens harboured ecto- and endoparasites, and 32% were infected with haemoparasites. eight different ectoparasites were identified; the more prevalent ones had the following prevalences (young, %; adult, %): argas persicus (6; 14), cnemidocoptes mutans (6; 32), echidnophaga gallinacea (72; 7 ...200212114010
population expansion of the poultry fluff louse, goniocotes gallinae (de geer, 1778) (ischnocera, phthiraptera).a study was undertaken to determine the rate of population expansion of an ischnoceran phthiraptera, goniocotes gallinae (infesting the domestic fowl, gallus gallus domesticus), on the basis of in vitro and in vivo studies. data obtained from in vitro rearing were utilized to construct the life history of the louse. the values of the gross reproductive rate (12.49 female eggs/female), net reproductive rate (8.31 female eggs/female), mean length of generation (36.91 days), precise generation time ...200717867830
ectoparasites of guinea fowl (numida meleagris galeata pallas) and local domestic chicken (gallus gallus) in southern guinea savanna, nigeria.the ectoparasites of poultry in a southern guinea savanna zone were investigated by the examination of guinea fowl and local domestic chickens in the range and guinea fowl under intensive management. the prevalent ectoparasites of range guinea fowl and local chickens include seven species of lice menacanthus stramineus, menopon gallinae, goniodes gigas, goniocotes gallinae, lipeurus caponis, numidilipeurus tropicalis, damalinia bovis; three mites bdellonyssus bursa, megninia cubitalis, dermanyss ...19883195043
the distribution of lice (phthiraptera) on poultry (gallus domesticus).the distribution of three amblyceran (menacanthus stramineus, menacanthus cornutus, menopon gallinae) and five ischnoceran species (lipeurus lawrensis tropicalis, lipeurus caponis. goniocotes gallinae, goniodes gigas, goniodes dissimilis) on poultry was determined. the preferred sites of these species on the host body were recorded.19911869359
prevalence and seasonal variation of ectoparasite load in free-range chicken of kashmir valley.a faunistical study of ectoparasites was carried out for a period of two years from january 2005 to december 2006 in rural free-range chicken purchased from different areas of kashmir valley. screening of a total of 478 birds revealed only lice infestation with an overall prevalence of about 100% and 97.69% birds harboring multiple species. the prevalence for various species of lice, during winter, spring, summer, autumn and overall prevalence respectively, was 90.32%, 99.14%, 100%, 98.34% and 9 ...200919252998
incidence of mallophaga on poultry in dehradun (india).the order of abundance of different mallophagan species on poultry birds in dehradun (india) has been found to be menopon gallinae greater than menacanthus cornutus greater than menacanthus stramineus greater than goniocotes gallinae greater than goniodes dissimilis greater than lipeurus caponis greater than lipeurus lawrensis tropicalis greater than goniodes gigas. the intensity of these species upon 1249 birds has been recorded by coding system. the correlation between the monthly incidence of ...19921610017
[species, dynamics and population composition of phthirapteran in free-range chickens (gallus gallus l.) in são luis island, state of maranhão].the objective of this work was to identify the phthirapteran species, to determine the prevalence according to the anatomical region of the body and to know the dynamics and composition of the population of these ectoparasites in free-range chicken in são luis island, state of maranhão. inspection was performed in 40 chickens and feathers were collected from the head, neck, wing, thigh, dorsal and ventral regions and cloacae. the phthirapteran species identified were: menopon gallinae l., menaca ...200818641896
chewing lice (phthiraptera) on chickens (gallus gallus) from small backyard flocks in the eastern part of the czech hundred and sixty chickens (gallus gallus) from 31 small, private backyard flocks in the eastern part of the czech republic were examined for chewing lice (phthiraptera: amblycera, ischnocera). at least one species of chewing lice was found on every bird examined. seven species of chewing lice were identified in all; they had the following prevalences and mean intensities: goniocotes gallinae (100%; 110 lice), menopon gallinae (88%; 50), menacanthus stramineus (48%; 17), lipeurus caponis (35 ...200818280661
