SHEEP FLY CONTROL

As the primary ectoparasite affecting sheep in spring and summer, blowfly strike is unfortunately often a familiar problem on sheep farms. As soon as soil temperatures reach 9°C, the overwintering fly larvae mature and emerge as flies which in turn deposit thousands of eggs onto sheep. The lifecycle is so quick and the volume of maggots so high which means that significant damage from blowfly strike can occur in as little as 24-36 hours after egg-laying.

As a result, sheep farmers can be left facing serious welfare and productivity issues1, while the financial consequences can be significant. One of the hardest challenges for blowfly control is predicting the start of the season each year as it can fluctuate considerably. This has been driven by changing weather patterns over the last decade creating an increasingly unpredictable and lengthening season. Being prepared and preventing early means farmers can take control of this devastating disease by planning their time and resources to suit their farm. It is also the best option for the health and welfare of the flock as well.

Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) prevent blowfly larvae developing into the harmful second and third stage maggots responsible for flystrike. CLiK™ EXTRA, CLiK™ and CLiKZiN™ from Elanco are the only products to benefit from FleeceBind™, a technology that binds the formulation strongly in place and provides consistent full fleece protection* – whatever the weather or season – reducing the risk of fly strike and productivity losses. 

CLiK® EXTRA Pour On

CLiK EXTRA is the newest product from Elanco, launched March 2017 and provides 19 weeks full fleece protection* – providing extended peace of mind.

It is a ready-to-use formula containing the active ingredient, dicyclanil, for the prevention of blowfly strike. As an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR), CLiK EXTRA stops blowfly larvae developing to the damaging second and third maggot stage, which causes flystrike. It also contains FleeceBind™ technology ensuring the formulation spreads and binds to the lanolin, providing full fleece* protection.

CLiK EXTRA is suitable for both ewes and lambs with any fleece length and is especially ideal for early application, full season protection of lambs.
