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. In the event there is conflicting information between this document and the label, the product label is the legal definition for the use of the product.
  2. Veterinarians can prescribe insecticides that are not specifically labeled for pests on sheep and goats provided a valid veterinary-client relationship exists.
  3. If you have questions, consult your veterinarian or Extension professional before applying any pesticide to livestock.
