Fluke Forecast - Summer 2020

The summer fluke forecast has been published by the National Animal Diseases Information Service (NADIS).

It predicts high risk in north western Scotland and moderate risk across the rest of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and the west of England.

The summer fluke forecast is based on rainfall and temperature for last summer and autumn, and for early summer 2020. This forecast is designed to indicate risk from fluke lifecycle stages that have survived over the winter in infected snails. Usually this is a less risky period than that expected in the autumn.
