Every good worming programme should consider strategic worming Strategic Worming = treating against the correct parasite at the correct time of year. Internal parasites to consider in early autumn: 1. Roundworms For a less drug dependent approach to parasite control, faecal egg counts (worm egg counts) can be used from late spring to early autumn to determine the need
