Monday, October 29, 2018

ParaBoss is a suite of three products developed for the management of blowflies, worms and lice. The WormBoss, FlyBoss and LiceBoss websites are sources of detailed management information and regional programs that will assist in managing the three major parasite risks for sheep.

Each site provides comprehensive details on integrated pest management including details on available chemicals for treatment and strategies to avoid the development of resistance.

Flyboss, Wormboss and Liceboss can be accessed via Paraboss.

ParaBoss has been developed by expert panels of parasitologists and veterinarians from across Australia. It is funded by Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation and coordinated by the University of New England with industry oversight. WormBoss, FlyBoss and ParaBoss were developed by the Sheep CRC. LiceBoss was developed by Australian Wool Innovation.
