    I always clip the wool off area ,because the maggots make an enzyme that turns the skin,flesh to mush so they can eat it. the wool is also soaked in the same stuff so will carry on doing damage even if you kill the maggots. Also this alllows you see the damage and treat it properly

    Since 'they' have removed Lindane from Maggot Oil rendering it generally useless I now use a mix of 25% Crovect in Maggot Oil, trim area and apply from spray bottle. Seems to work for me.

    Do you treat the skin when you clip/remove the wool and if so what with.
    I needed to clip a palm sized area of wool yesterday and then treated the area and surrounding wool with crovect.
    I now have a sad looking lamb with a naked ass.
    This is my first big fly/maggot strike and it looked horrible.
