Mites are parasites on plants, animals (Invertebrate and Vertebrate) including humans. The biodiversity of poultry dust and variation in different seasons study was carried out. About 450 samples were screened for two years from poultry farm located at Ghorda, about 12 kilometers away from Rajnandgaon District, state Chhattisgarh, India. Simple pick up method for qualitative, and centrifugation method for quantitative estimation of mites was performed. Two species of mites Dermanyssus gallinae (48%), Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (20%) and Ornithonyssus bursa (09%) revealed in between June 2012 to May 2014. The temperature and relative humidity directly affected the mite incidence. Poultry dust mites found peak in August to September during the study year, when temperature was around 300 and relative humidity between 750 to 850. Protonymphs and Duetonymphs larvae of chicken mite’s incidence were also found.
