WEBINAR: Flystrike is on its way - are you prepared? 

12.30pm - 1.30pm, Wednesday 25 August 2021 

Guest presenter: Narelle Sales, NSW Department of Primary Industries


Following a wet and magnificent winter, and a proven emerging issue of growing blowfly resistance to chemical preventatives across NSW, the 2021 Spring and Summer are shaping up to be a challenging flystrike season.

Here is your opportunity to learn about how to plan and manage prevention of flystrike in your flock by listening to a leading flystrike expert in NSW, Narelle Sales.

Narelle will not only be updating your knowledge on chemical and management strategies for flystrike but will work through a case study to give you a real-time example of how to plan and manage the upcoming season. There will also be the opportunity to participate in an interactive session at the end of the webinar so you can start planning your flystrike strategy for the months ahead.

The following topics will be covered in the webinar: 

  • The life cycle of Lucilia
  • Available insecticides (past and present) to prevent and/or treat flystrike
  • What is insecticide resistance and how we determine it
  • What resistance to Dicyclanil and Cyromazine means for protection period
  • Demonstration of risk modelling which includes the strategic use of insecticides, crutching and drenching 
  • The four pillars to reduce reliance on insecticides
  • The decision tree of insecticide use.

If you can’t join in real time we still encourage you to register and you will receive a recording of the webinar emailed directly to you an hour after the conclusion of the webinar to watch at your own convenience.
