1998), and the contrary happens regarding chewing lice. Knowledge about these interactions is of paramount importance for understanding many ecological aspects of these animals.
The majority of studies of the biology of chewing lice have focused on species that parasitise domesticated birds and thus are of economic importance to poultry producers, such as parasites of Gallus gallus (Linnaeus, 1758): Menacanthus stramineus (Nitzsch, 1818), Lipeurus caponis (Linnaeus, 1758) and Goniocotes gallinae (De Geer, 1778); and parasites of Columba livia (Gmelin, 1789): Columbicola columbae (Linnaeus, 1758) and Colpocephalum turbinatum (Denny, 1842).
obligate avian ectoparasites live exclusively on hosts (e.g., chewing lice Dennyus hirundinis Lee and Clayton, 1995), while other free-living ectoparasites live in close association with hosts (e.g., swallow bugs Oeciacus vicarius, oesterle et al., 2010).
(2003) found three species of ticks (Haemaphysalis punctata, Hyalomma lusitanicum, and Ixodes frontalis) and six species of chewing lice (Goniodes dispar, Cuclotogaster obscurior, Goniocotes obscurus, Menopon pallens, Menacanthus lyali and Columbicola columbae columbae) on wild red legged partridges.
Most of his experience has been with sheep scab, so that gets most of the book's attention, along with two other major ectoparasitic problems facing sheep production worldwide: blowfly strike and chewing lice. He covers mites, ticks, lice, flies, fleas, diagnosis, prevention, chemical control, alternative control methods, and economic damage.
Officials say the new product maximizes the power of fipronil by combining it with a second active ingredient (cyphenothrin in the dog formula and etofenprox in the cat formula.) The patent-pending, dual-action formula delivers superior results in killing fleas, ticks and chewing lice, it is the first formula available in retail products that deliver the synergistic protection provided by combining fipronil with a second active ingredient.

coli 8739 tended to be lower for birds infested with chewing lice than those without chewing lice, and male birds had lower microbicidal capacity than females in the case of Staphylococcus aureus.
