Lesser mealworm or darkling beetle, Alphitobius diaperinus are common insect pests of broiler houses throughout the world.
As they can function as vectors for a large number of avian diseases and parasites and can carry food borne diseases, large lesser mealworm populations pose significant threats to broiler flock health and the production of safe food. They are also structural pests of broiler houses, causing damage to compacted earth floors, and ceiling and wall insulation.
This report describes the trialling of biological agents for the management of lesser mealworm in broiler houses.
