Farmers can help prevent blowfly strike in sheep by applying an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) early in the season.
IGRs are a targeted, narrow-spectrum product for preventing blowfly strike, making them the gold standard in blowfly prevention. They work by preventing the first wave of flies from breeding, thus reducing fly numbers for the rest of the season.
The CLiK™ brands are the only IGRs containing FleeceBind™ technology, which provides full fleece protection. It helps spread the formulation from the tip to the base of the fleece and binds it strongly in place, sticking it to the wool*.
The table below provides some suggested treatments and should be used as a guidance only as individual farm needs will vary. The duration of cover depends on the correct application.
