The chicken body louse, Menacanthus stramineus (Nitzsch) shaft louse, Menopon gallinae (L.); and wing louse, Lipeurus caponis (L.), on hens were markedly reduced when granules or dusts of 7 toxicants were applied to litter or when 2 toxicants were placed in dust-bath boxes, except for a dust-bath treatment of 1% Dowco 175 (2,4- dichlorophenyl propyl methylphosphoramidate). Treatment with 4.4% granules of Zytron® (0-2,4-dichlorophenyl 0-methyl isopropylphosphoramidothioate), 2% dust of Imidan® (0,0-dimethyl S-phthalimidomethyl phosphorodithioate), and 2% dust of carbophenothion gave 100% control in 10 days or less when the toxicants were applied to litter at the rate of 50 g/m2. A 5% dust of Shell SD- 8447 (2-chloro-l-(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl)vinyl dimethyl phosphate), applied at the same rate, was only slightly less effective. However, 5% granules of ronnel, 2% granules of bromophos, and 2% dust of dimetilan, applied at the same rate, never entirely eliminated lice from the birds.
