most worming agents are ok to use on BN, just make sure you know the dosage.

For worms I was put on to Big L pig and poultry wormer. A lot of people swear by it and i am a convert to say the least. Not only does it do worms but it helps kill internal parasites of all sorts too. I got mine through vet and pet direct online.

There seems to be quite a lot of reports of this parasitic pest of late.

This thread deals with the issue in a fairly complete manner.
Hope Admin don't mind the link Laughing

I swear by BigL pig n poultry wormer..brilliant stuff,you have to do a gravel vac after use, as it paralyses the worms, it doesn't kill them.
