VIDEO: PestExtra: Bird Mites Environmentally Tricky, Socially Misunderstood, Technically Still Challenging

In this video Professor Olivier Sparagano, University of Hong Kong, talks through the key points to consider when fighting arthropod pests such as birds mites, to maximise its control and develop long-term strategies.

This pest is also responsible for the transmission of pathogens such as Salmonellosis or Avian Influenza bringing secondary health issues for people living in infested houses but also for pest control staff being attacked during treatment activities.

Such Acari pest is difficult to eradicate from human dwellings due to its size, ability to hide and to resist to many treatments.

This presentation premiered at PestExtra 2021: the pest management show online. 

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) hosts these free events so everyone interested in pest management can learn, share and connect.

This video is intended for those working in the pest management sector.
