Treatment Factors Tool


This program works through your method of treatment, asking about some of the issues that could lead to treatment failure. This may be useful if you are not sure whether your treatment was good enough to eradicate lice, or if you have had a treatment failure and want to check where it might have been inadequate. If you use different methods for different groups of sheep then evaluate each method separately.

The program calculates the probability of eradication of lice, if they were present. It does not attempt to estimate whether lice were actually present or not. Use the Short Wool Lice Tool to assess the risk that the flock had lice.

Click on the Start button below to begin, then use the Next button to proceed through the stages. Should you wish to change any options chosen in previous stages then use the Back button to step backwards and modify your selections.
