Flystrike Risk Adults

This map shows the risk of flystrike for adult sheep across Australia for the next 5 days based on recent and predicted weather conditions.

Press play on the map so it progresses through a map for each of the 5 days.

The ultimate risk of flystrike risk for sheep will depend on the following, some of which can vary considerably across animals within a mob:

  • Sheep breed
  • Wool type
  • Wool length
  • Wool colour
  • Neck, body wrinkle/folds
  • Breech traits: wrinkle, dag, cover, urine stain
  • Time since last shearing or crutching
  • Last chemical flystrike prevention applied and time since application
  • The individual sheep’s susceptibility
