  The potential of combination using of chitin-synthesis inhibitor, triflumuron, synthetic pyrethroid, lambdacyhalothrin and carbamate, bendiocarb was assessed to control and evaluated for effectiveness against the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae (De Geer) under practical conditions. More than 70 % of reduction of mites was noticed during 5 months after hall treatment with Triflumuron. Treatment breeding hen houses with triflumuron, lambdacyhalothrin and bendiocarb in their combination, showed noticeable differences in mite density in comparison of control and experimental halls, with mean efficacy 98.9 and 77.6 %, respectively. Complete extinction of the population of red mites did not occur.
