Some handy tips for management of lice in your flock:
1/ Only the best laid plans can eradicate lice. Do it once do it right
2/ Always maintain good fences.
3/ Know your neighbors lice status, talk and coordinate an attack on lice control.
4/ Avoid split shearings and lambs at foot.
5/ Keep introduced sheep separate for a quarantine period until you can be assured they are lice free or treated if necessary. Never return a stray sheep until its treated for lice.
6/ Ensure a clean muster, its always recommended a second muster to check for any sheep missed the first time.
7/ Never mix mobs of treated and untreated sheep.
8/ Lice can cause up to 10% loss in wool production and up to 10% less in $$$ per kilo. Lousy sheep are harder to shear and the shearers are likely to ask for more $$$ per head. 9/ Sheep rubbing on an old fence decreases the life of that fence.
10/ Lice causes discoloration of the fleece which holds moisture and attracts fly's.
11/ Dipping is cost effective compared to other lice treatments.
