Control of headfly on sheep



Control of headfly on sheep



Veterinary Record 120(26): 612-614



Eighteen different treatments against sheep headfly (Hydrotaea irritans) were tested on Scottish blackface and Swaledale ewes and lambs. Gamma-HCH + para-dichlorobenzene gave consistently better control than crotoxyphos cream. Pyrethroids in sprays or incorporated into ear tags were relatively ineffective. Pyrethroid pour-ons gave good control, but in a year of low headfly attack they were not as effective as lindane + para-dichlorobenzene.
