Welcome to the 2018 Elanco blowfly tracker – here you will find out the latest cases of blowfly strike as they happen. The map will be automatically updated as blowfly strike cases are reported, providing a near live resource for farmers, vets and industry professionals. The update feed will include tips and advice from industry experts.
The start of the blowfly season is variable year on year and can vary considerably across different areas on the same farm. Blowflies are dependent on soil temperatures rising above 90C. In 2017, the first reported case we received was in mid-April in Hampshire compared with early May in 2016. As a result, it is always important to act early and use a preventative as soon as the weather starts to warm up.
