Treatment with a neem seed extract (MiteStop®) of beetle larvae parasitizing the plumage of poultry.
Summary of "Treatment with a neem seed extract (MiteStop®) of beetle larvae parasitizing the plumage of poultry."
Beetles of the species Alphitobius diaperinus, Dermestes bicolor, and Dermestes lardarius may transmit severe agents of diseases on poultry and may in addition harm as larvae the skin and feathers thus leading to severe economic losses. The present study deals with a control measurement using a neem seed extract (MiteStop®) being diluted with tap water. It was shown that spraying of a 1:33 dilution kills both larvae and adults of these part-time parasites as was previously shown for other parasites such as mites, ticks, and blood sucking or biting insects.
