Abstract/Summary Most effective and efficient control of flystrike requires an integrated approach that targets both sheep susceptibility and fiy populations. Elements of a good integrated flystrike control program may include all or a subset of the following: breeding for resistance; mulesing by an accredited muleser or use of an alternative breech treatment technology; docking tails to the correct length; strategic timing of crutching and shearing; prevention of scouring; fiy monitoring and strategic use of fiytraps; paddock management to minimise strike risk; strategic use of chemicals. Other papers in these proceedings discuss reducing sheep susceptibility, specifically breech modification technologies and breeding for reduced susceptibility. In this paper I will focus on the biology of flystrike and ways in which it is possible to use knowledge of fly biology to reduce the likelihood and impact of strike waves.
