The Poultry Red Mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) is a parasite of major concern in the poultry industry. Monitoring and evaluation of interventions have historically proven difficult. In 2012 AviVet launched a project to develop a reliable, cheap way to monitor Poultry Red Mite infestation in poultry houses. In 2016 we published the validation of our traps in Poultry Science and at the same time started the world-wide distribution of our traps.
Currently, the AviVet Red Mite Traps are used in most countries with large poultry production industries.
