The red Dermanyssus gallinae mite is a blood-feeder that attacks birds, producing significant damage in chicken farms, notably for egg-laying hens. COST COREMI’s action seeks to expand interdisciplinary study of the parasite in order to improve understanding of infestation phenomena, and thereby to favor the development of long-term control methods. Given the impact of the damage caused, it is essential to encourage studies that seek to improve biological control over the red mite to achieve effective management of this harmful bio-aggressor.
