- Sheep should be treated in early spring to make sure all adult fluke are eliminated and that the egg shedding is reduced. This should be done before the population of snails increases. Treatment should be repeated 10 to 12 weeks later.
- The infective challenge of fluke begins to gain momentum in July and reaches it's peak in the autumn.
- Treatment should take place every 6 - 12 weeks depending on the challenge from mid summer until the end of the year when the challenge from metacercarial should have reduced.
- It is important to make sure that fluke does not make it onto your farm through new livestock that is introduced to your farm. New livestock must be quarantined and treated with a suitable flukicide.
