    I give my girls ivermectin once or twice a year when I am cleaning out the coop and dusting with DE...

    I went to help a friend do the sme thing and they had purchased the Ivermectin that was white paste instead of the clear vaseline like stuff that I use. We used it. What is the difference? This one said it also had botinade in it or boditade.... anyone know the difference?

    Ivermectin is an effective drug, but use it sparingly.

    It kills dung beetles, which though less than delightful in their food choice are pretty important in an eco-system.

    We manage ours organically as far as possible and Ivermectin cannot be used in organic systems.

    We keep sheep and with the larger doses needed in bigger organisms Ivermectin can have a rally adverse affect on the ground,
