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
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
phthiraptera (arthropoda, insecta) in gallus gallus from isolated and mixed backyard rearing systems.the objectives were to identify the species of chewing lice (mallophaga) at different body sites in chickens (gallus gallus), in isolated and mixed rearing systems, and to determine the dynamics and structure of the louse populations collected. the prevalences were 100 and 35% for chickens in the isolated and mixed systems, respectively. the species recorded were: menopon gallinae, menacanthus stramineus, goniodes gigas, goniocotes gallinae and lipeurus caponis. the chickens in the isolated syst ...201121439226
determinants influencing prevalence of louse infestations on layers of district faisalabad (pakistan).1. this paper describes the influence of some epidemiological determinants on the prevalence of louse infestation on layers in faisalabad (pakistan). 2. seventy layer farms were screened to determine the prevalence of louse infestation and its determinants including age of the bird, availability of space per bird and frequency of litter change. prevalence of lipeurus caponis was highest (53.2%), followed by menacanthus stramineus (22.16%), goniodes dissimilis (12.37%) and goniodes gallinae (12.3 ...200717952725
