In addition to crutching and shearing times there are a range of chemicals available that can provide increased protection against flystrike.
The suite of chemicals available and methods of application are detailed in the Treatment section of this website.
Chemicals should be used strategically in combination with breeding, shearing, crutching and other management practices to reduce the risk of flystrike.
The FlyBoss tools allow you to review the list of available chemicals and their impact on flystrike risk at different application times.
The figure below, generated from the FlyBoss tools shows the reduction in flystrike risk with a strategic application of CLiK® in December.
Relative risk of flystrike in non-mulesed sheep at Glenn Innes with October shearing and March crutching. The solid red line is with no chemical application. The dotted blue line is with a CLiK® application in December—see below.
