What is rotation and why should I be doing it?
It is important to “rotate” wormers by alternating from one compound to another. This should not be done every time you worm, but rather on a seasonal basis. In Australia, seasonal conditions are ideal for parasite growth during most of the year, particularly the warm wet months of spring and autumn, however, the lifecycle of different parasites mean that they may be more active at different times of the year.
When considering a rotational program, you must also ensure that you are actually changing the compounds that you are using. Many of the wormers on the market contain the same or similar active ingredients and switching the brand name or colour of the box may not mean you have actually changed the active you are using. There are two main families of active: the “mectin” or “ML” class those with names ending in “-ectin”, and the “BZ” class of active those ending in “-azole”. There are other classes of active ingredient, but they are less commonly used and are generally used in combination with other actives to target speciﬁc parasites.
To ensure the best seasonal worm treatment, it is recommended that a BZ-based wormer like Strategy-T is used in spring and summer, and a mectin-based wormer like Equimax is used in autumn and winter.
