This webinar is for wool producers who want to gain or maintain a lice-free status. Dr Peter James has been working with sheep ectoparasites for 30 years and has been team leader of the Liceboss program.

Peter uses this webinar as a platform to bring progressive producers the big ticket items on sheep lice management. Peter draws on real trial data to demonstrate how lice proliferate over time, and what the implications are for management.

He shows how they are transferred, and what the vectors are for lice movement. The history of lice prevalence is traced back to the early 80’s, and how it has responded to development and eventual resistance to certain active chemicals.

Among much more, and an expansive question time, Peter showcases some of the best decision support tools available to producers to assist lice management on their farms.
