  • Description:
    For the past few years interest has been focused on the mites of domestic and wild birds (particularly species of Dermanyssus and Liponyssus) as potential vectors of both the St. Louis and Western equine encephalitis types of viruses. In order to test such mites for virus infection, it is necessary to obtain adequate samples of living material either from the bird nests, or from nestling birds themselves. The method described below was developed for the purpose of obtaining such samples with a minimum of effort and loss of mites.
