LiceBoss

Lice cost Australian woolgrowers more than $120 million annually. Lice reduce fleece weight and downgrade wool quality.

Retailers face increasing pressure to minimise chemical residues in wool processing as lice continue to develop resistance to chemicals.

LiceBoss is a decision support system that can help woolgrowers control lice more effectively, minimise pesticide residues and reduce the cost of lice control.

LiceBoss is an online tool developed by AWI and the Sheep Industry CRC for woolgrowers wanting to identify, treat and prevent lice.
