Gastrointestinal worms attack the internal organs. They lead to major economic losses in livestock farming due to poor feed recycling, diarrhea and decreased increases. In case of severe infestation, deaths also occur.
The gastrointestinal worms have a direct development cycle – infected animals tapeworm the faeces, which in turn are directly contagious for other animals by ingestion.
A successful worm-fighting requires effective deworming and disinfection in the direct environment of the animals on the stable surfaces at the right time.
Tapeworm can still be eliminated over a period of 8-10 days. Gastrointestinal worms can leave up to a million eggs a day.
Without the effective disinfection, the retired eggs on the stable surfaces over long periods of time over viable.
