    We can supply chemical. Industry standard 9.5 meter swim & dunked twice. Guaranteed 100% lice kill. Servicing Central and Northern Victoria & Gippsland.

    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.
