    How long are you, who use Ivermectin oral, wasting eggs? I have seen anywhere from two weeks to six weeks on here! Thoughts?

    I have heard people feed the eggs back to their hens.

    I go ahead and throw out eggs for 3 weeks. A little overkill, but I would rather err on the side of caution. Hurts to throw out those eggs, so I take that opportunity to bait my live traps with them. I have found that raccoons won't resist a nice yummy egg!! The residual wormer doesn't hurt where they end up going. LOL
     
  8. i have also heard of people not bothering to throw them out. that the iver. will not hurt you at all.

    Perfect! Thanks! I hate tossing them out! I was seeing over 20 days in some posts! 14 sounds good. I think I'm past that now anyway. Thanks again!
