Flystrike # 2
Can anyone suggest a treatment for sheep which are severely fly blown. We've shorn it, but need to find something which will kill the maggots that have crawled into the wool surrounding the raw areas.
Glenda

Bath the infected area with warm sea salt solution, hose all infected parts with cold water, bath again with solution, rinse again, repeat until all maggots have gone.

Then spray or wipe sheep with a garlic solution ( 3-4 cloves of garlic, 4 cups of water, all in kitchen blender until frothy, probably enough for one sheep).
