Acaricides could be used as veterinary drugs or pesticides to eliminate mites and ticks. Several acaricides are allowed to be used in animal husbandry and are registered as veterinary drugs. However, most acaricides are not registered as veterinary drugs. In 2017 unregistered (for poultry) Fipronil was used in many poultry farms in the Netherlands and the compound was detected in eggs. This raised the question: which (unregistered) acaricides and related compounds, with similar properties, are used in animal husbandry? To answer this question, a qualitative UHPLC-high resolution MS screening method was developed and validated for the screening of a high number of acaricides and related compounds in feathers and hair and a survey study was carried out to monitor the use of these compounds.
