- Lucilia cuprina (Wiedemann)，is an important pest of sheep in Australia and other parts of the world. However, the paucity of information on many fundamental molecular aspects of this species limits the ability to exploit functional genomics techniques for the discovery of new drug targets for its control.
- It is of significant concern as a result of the welfare issues and production losses that arise when gravid female blowflies deposit eggs on sheep, giving rise to fly strike. It is an important ecto-parasite that causes fly strike, which has significant health and welfare, as well as economic, impacts on the sheep industry in Australia .
