Abstract

Present study was carried out at different locations oftaluka Pano Akil of Sukkur region on fortnightly interval basis during, 2013-14.Overall total poultry birds (1200) were kept under observation, from which  (462) found to be infested, out of them only (38) birds randomly selected and overall mean of ten birds effected were observed (52.20),The sever infestation of poultry lice, M. gallinae with overall mean population observed was (21.00) with (40.22%) followed by G. dissimilis (14.49) with (27.75%), M. clyae (11.49) with (22.93%) and C. tschulyschma (7.18) with (13.75%), respectively. Therefore, twenty severely infested chickens were observed from neck, chest and cloacal regions on fortnight interval bases these were never been injected or used any drugs for precaution of lice repellent or kill. Only the naturally population was kept under observations. There were 4 kinds of lice species namely; Menopon gallinae, Goniodes disimilis, Machaeriaemus clyae and Columbicola tschyulyschmawere reported first time from this Sukkur region. The results indicate that peak population of lice were observed at taluka Pano Akil in the month of June (35.78) / bird and least population in January (10.26) with the overall mean population (44.75) / bird, respectively. It was further observed that in the taluka Pano Akil, the overall infection present population of M. gallinae was observed (40.22%) / bird followed by G. dissimilis (12.94), M. clyae (22.93) and C. tschulyschma (13.75). It is recommendedthat, integrated control strategies should be done in place to improve chicken productivity and enhance smallholder livelihood in Pano akail aria of Sukkur region.
