I see the occasional round worm in a poop, didn't treat for them, was months before I saw another.What I saw before was worms, wiggling around in one of my birds poop. Since I started treatment I haven't seen any.
I had a pile of maggots on top of a poop bucket, covered them in DE, barely slowed them down.Once the maggots were picked off I put most of them in a bleach/apple cider vinegar mix, which didn’t kill them very fast. I put a few in DE, which actually did kill them.
This wasnt hype...this was a University study with no skin in the game one way or the other. Are you sayng the school is wrong...thats a bit presumptuous! I dont think my comments were pro or against vaccines.....I simply said according to the results of the study there were still reasons to use DE that were positive for anyones flock! Did you read thr study results?Believe what you want. Again as @dawg53 and @aart said, " People look for natural ways to treat chickens and they believe the hype and salesman when it comes to DE. Fake News. Been there, done that with DE long long ago. It doesnt prevent nor treat worms.", "DE doesn't kill parasites, inside or out.".
It didn't work for me either. When I have had worms I use Wazine but now it's way too expensive. I bought a jug of it and it works but there is a 2 week egg withdrawal period.
