Chemicals for killing sheep ectos

OK, I am lowering the tone of WormMail by talking about ectoparasites (but, flies and lice are the number 2 and 3 diseases, respectively, of Australian sheep, after worms).

Gemma Junk has just updated a new Primefact on chemicals to treat lice and flies: it can be found on our website:

Managing Worms Webinar (QLD)

TO: WormMail List (recip undisclosed)   cc others (apols if you get this twice)    WormMail 201002151520

‘May be of interest.

This webinar will likely contain material that is generally applicable as well as material that pertains in particular to south eastern Queensland, which has summer dominant rainfall (more so than northern NSW) and warmer conditions than the tablelands of NSW.

Regarding the major roundworms, sheep worm burdens in SE Qld are dominated by Haemonchus (H) and Trichostronglyus (T) species and relatively few Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) (O), whereas northern NSW has H+O+T, and central and southern NSW, with non-seasonal and winter rainfall, has T+O, and sometimes H.
