    That requires a lot of math...I have calculated it out before, but no longer have the info cause I ran out of those vitamins and will have to refigure when I get more.

    The bag I got had to be diluted before it was put into the water at all..I hated it cause I had to take 1 packet, divide it into a certain amount for a 1 gallon container and then add that diluted solution into the gallon waterers cause I didn't want to make up thousands of gallons at once. I hope you didn't get that one!

    The idea here is to then worm again when they molt, since egg production during molt is much lower, however, since the wormer I used is used on people in other countries, I am not sure I will discard eggs or not. I certaintly would not sell them. but for personal use, I am still on the fence.
