Australia's resource for control of worms, flies and lice in sheep,
and worms in goats

New South Wales
>> full report

WormTests performed across the region have been variable with some high worm egg counts while others continue to record zero egg counts. Use refugia strategies because drench resistance develops faster in drought conditions.

Victoria
>> full report

A lot of sheep will not require a first summer drench this year due to low worm burdens, but they will need monitoring over summer, especially if rain falls.

Queensland
>> full report

When it rains again, monitor the worm situation carefully as barber’s pole worm numbers can build up very quickly.

Western Australia
>> full report

Worm egg count a couple of mobs of weaners and hogget-age sheep to determine whether a drench in early summer is justified.  

Tasmania
>> full report

It is dry across the whole state, but summer rain, while most welcome, will change the fly and worm outlook overnight.

South Australia
>> full report

Only the occasional lamb mob in the higher rainfall area has required drenching. The latest information is that lungworm is more widespread than previously thought.
