Q. Will ORAMEC Drench kill worms that are resistant
to control by white drenches?
A. Yes. ORAMEC is routinely used in wormer rotation programmes.
Also, it is often used to treat sheep that are brought in from market and neighbouring
farms where the worming history is either not known or may in doubt. It makes sense
to treat all sheep with ORAMEC Drench and keep them isolated, preferably on hard
standing, for 48 hours before mixing them with the main flock.
Q. Will ORAMEC Drench control inhibited time-bomb
worms and help prevent the spring rise?
A. Yes. Treat the ewes just before you house the sheep or just
prior to lambing. This will kill the dormant worms in the sheep that would emerge
in the spring and contaminate pasture at the time when lambs are beginning to graze.
