Poultry plays a very important role for people especially in a country like India where it is a means of providing food, generating employment, providing raw materials to certain industries etc. As majority of people in India are non-vegetarians, the proteins from poultry constitute a major part of their diet. But off late the poultry in India has been affected by the presence of many intestinal parasites due to which the poultry industry has suffered a major set back. One of the parasites is Ascaridia galli.It is the intestinal parasite of poultry especially the domestic fowl. It is not only the chicken but also their eggs that are being affected by the parasite. Though there are many antihelminthic drugs being given now a days but these antihelminthic drugs cause many side effects in the poultry.Due to high cost of these drugs and also lack of knowledge, these drugs are out of reach of small scale poultry farmers.The present paper lays emphasis on the control of Ascarida infection by natural and biological methods rather than the use of antihelminthic drugs.
