Elanco have been tracking the blowfly season for over 5 years and have seen that the start can fluctuate year on year and can even vary considerably across different areas on the same farm. Blowflies are dependent on soil temperatures rising above 9 degrees Celsius. Over the last few years, the first reported cases of strike has varied from April to early May. As a result, it is always important to act early and use a preventative as soon as the weather starts to warm up.

To report a case of strike so that farmers and the wider industry can be prepared is simple – click the button below to use the online reporting form. Alternatively you can contact your Elanco representative or email elancoUK@elanco.com with details of blowfly activity on your farm.
