Pterygota [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ]. Gonoides dissimilis Brown chicken-louse and G. This combination of pathological effects often greatly reduces productivity of a flock.
But massive infestations can substantially reduce performance and reproduction. There are more than 40 species worldwide. The second measure is to prevent dissemination of lice between poultry housesif one of them becomes infested.
Nests of wild birds in or around the facilities have to be destroyed. Antennae have 4 or 5 segments, but they are less visible than in the ischnoceran lice because they occupy an antennal groove in the head.

Since temperature and humidity remain quite constant on the body surface of the birds, lice populations are not very susceptible to seasonal changes in climatic and ecological conditions, especially indoors. Paraneoptera infraclass [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ]. Young birds are particularly harmed by these lice; infestations can build up rapidly, leaving the birds weak and even killing them.
This species is the most damaging of the bird lice . Dusting also works and it allows treating the birds indirectly, e.

The Philopteridae infest birds: Data Providers Report a bug or request support View in mobile site. Eggs are whitish and are laid often in clusters at the base of the feathers.
Claws on the legs are variable, one or a pair depending on the genus. Infestations are particularly dense on the breast, thighs, and around the vent. This division is clearest on the dorsal surface.
The eggs are laid in clusters on the feathers or directly on the kin. Taxon Term is the data value of either a classification term “Animalia” or classification metadata such as name authors. Heterodoxus spiniger infests domestic dogs and cwponis canids, also marsupial mammals. It also infests wild canids.
Pancrustacea [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ]. Bovicola bovis feeding activity can cause damage to the appearance of processed hides.
The ischnoceran lice that infest domestic animals are in two families. Lipeurus genus [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ]. Menopon gallinae Shaft-louse infests chickens, turkeys and ducks on their breast and thigh feathers. The lice may penetrate the blood vessels at base of feathers, leading to anemia. The claws lipejrus the legs do not articulate onto a distinct tibial claw as often seen in the sucking lice.
Lice in this group are similar in feeding habits to the ischnoceran lice because they feed with chewing mouthparts. Neoptera subclass [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ]. Eggs are laid preferentially are the small feathers under the wings.
Coelomata [ more like this term ] [ including rank ] [ from this source ].
Pathological effects are only likely if the host is already in poor condition from other parasites or malnutrition.
