Sheep and Goat Pests

In all cases, follow the instructions on the pesticide label. The PNW Insect Management Handbook has no legal status, whereas the pesticide label is a legal document. Read the product label before making any pesticide applications.

Note: Products are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference or superiority of pest control.


  1. Products labeled for use on dairy goats may not be legal to use on meat goats. Read the label carefully or contact the manufacturer of the product if there are questions.
  2. Veterinarians can prescribe insecticides that are not specifically labeled for pests on sheep and goats provided a veterinary-client relationship exists.
  3. Consult your veterinarian before applying any pesticide.
