WormBoss was developed by the Australian Sheep Industry Cooperative Research Centre (Sheep CRC 1) and Australian Wool Innovation with the support of Animal Health Alliance, in 2005. 

It was further developed during the term of the Cooperative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC 2) by its partner organisations

Both Sheep CRCs were funded by the Commonwealth Government's Cooperative Research Program and the partner organisations.

WormBoss moved into a new post-Sheep CRC phase in March 2014.

Initial funding is provided by Australian Wool Innovation and Meat and Livestock Australia.

The University of New England manages ParaBoss (WormBoss, FlyBoss and LiceBoss) and provides in-kind support.

On 6 November 2016 WormBoss was expanded to include goats.
