External Parasites on Swine Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • External parasites of swine are a serious problem for Florida producers. Arthropod parasites limit production by feeding on blood, skin, and hair. The wounds and skin irritation produced by these parasites result in discomfort and irritation to the animal. In Florida, the major pests on swine are lice, mange mites, ticks and stable flies, although horse flies, deer flies, mosquitoes and wound-infesting maggots may also cause severe problems. This document is ENY-287 (IG138), one of a series of the Entomology and Nematology Department, UF/IFAS Extension. Original publication date April 1980. Revised March 2006.
