Lice Control

LiceBoss is a decision support system which can help woolgrowers control lice more effectively, minimise pesticide residues and reduce the cost of lice control. Lice infestation costs Australian woolgrowers more than $120 million annually. They reduce fleece weight and downgrade wool quality.

In addition, there are increasing market requirements to minimise chemical residues resulting from lice and flystrike treatments, fewer control options with the recent suspension of diazinon and continuing challenges due to the development of resistance.

The new LiceBoss website provides the following information:

  • About lice
  • Preventing lice
  • Monitoring lice
  • Treatment
  • Resistance, residues safety
  • Tools


The following Tools are available on the LiceBoss website:

  • Products tool
  • Ewe-lamb treatment tool
  • Long wool tool
  • Treatment tool
  • Rubbing tool
  • Short wool tool
  • Wool residue tool
