Managing Flystrike and Lice

B+LNZ Practical Guide for Farmers

Effective prevention and treatment of flystrike and lice involves a multi-pronged approach. This booklet aims to provide you with the detail you need to:

b) The treatment options – chemical and non-chemical – available to you.
B+LNZ recommend you get specialist advice. Your vet or a qualified advisor can help.
