Ectoparasites in sheep have significant effects on both welfare and production and their importance varies in relation to the geographical location and the system of production. This article focuses on the main ectoparasites and their related diseases within the UK, covering clinical signs, diagnostic methods and the treatment and control measures available. To conclude, future development in the areas of vaccine, biotechnologies and genetic selection are addressed to improve the control and reduce the negative effects of ectoparasites.
