Solution for Avian Red Mite

The ubiquitous presence of hematophagous avian mites threatens the poultry industry majorly in Asia and Europe. This leads to huge economic loss and welfare-related issues worldwide. Likewise, the recent review indicated that the prevalence of mites was higher in layer hens (85.2%) than in broilers (0.6%). Avian mites are of both veterinary and medical concerns due to their potential roles as vectors for bacterial and viral pathogens.

Poultry Red Mite, Dermanyssus gallinae, is the most significant ectoparasite globally, affecting production systems in the chicken egg-laying industry. Though chemical control of poultry red mites remains the dominant method in commercial farms, conventional Acaricidal treatments may give only limited or short-lived reductions in mite populations.

LIMITER is a stable combination of plant-derived oils designed on a pragmatic and rational approach of reducing mites through a multipronged strategy. It induces gustatory avoidance along with olfactory repellency, contact and vapour toxicity.

Mechanism of Action

The essential oil present in Limiter acts on postsynaptic acetylcholine receptors via competitive inhibition, hindering the acetylcholine binding. The absence of signal transmission results in depolarization of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (acetylcholine receptors at neuromuscular junction) via increase flow of chloride ions into the muscle cells, resulting in hyperstimulation of muscle cells and consequently paralysis and death in red mites.

Benefits of Limiter

– Strong acaricidal activity

– Acarine repellent

– Highly water-soluble

– Stable, no loss of activity of volatile compounds

– Long term post-application effect

– Non-toxic to birds

– Non-hazardous to the environment


– 150 ml per 1000 liters of drinking water for 1 week. Repeat the same dose after a gap of 1-week until desired results are achieved.
