Pigeon Hairworms


Pigeon Hairworms

Pigeon Hairworms; these worms are very small (up to 1/4 ” long) and very thin, so seeing them in the intestines is very difficult, and requires special techniques. Because these worms bury their heads right into the wall of the intestines, they cause tissue damage and irritation that can result in haemorrhage, diarrhoea and loss of weight. Like roundworm eggs, those of the hairworm are not infective when they are passed in droppings, but need about a week in damp, cool conditions for the development of a young worm.
