    Point, obviously it's a very tough scenario to deal with. Thank God I've never had to.

    At the point hers are at recently emerging, idk if the worming will address it. Probably, but I'd want both myself.. Internal and external. Hers are obviously very close to emergent with him going bonkers trying to rub.

    Edited - exactly as you said. ;)

    While I was in Michigan we had a lot of this as the horses were outside 24/7 without cover. We kept giving Ivermectin once a month all spring, summer and fall, to try and kill them before they got a chance to develop. Similarly, we would have horses just covered all over their legs, with botfly eggs in early fall, we had to remove them too.

    The vet, who was very LOUD kept shouting, "THINK OF THIS AS AN ONGOING CYCLE! GOING ON AND ON, ALL YEAR, PARASITES (even louder) INCUBATING, HATCHING, INSIDE YOUR HORSE!!!"

    We were like, jeez, thanks.

    And Ivermectin used monthly is the fastest, most bestest way to immunize the larvae AGAINT...

    Ivermectin.
    Their life cycle in the horse is 10 months, or there abouts.. Worming monthly is OVER WORMING.
    Let the bots emerge, treat the wounds by cleaning with betadine and packing with ichthammol, or other iodine based drawing salve, then worm for them spring and fall, keep the new bot eggs scraped off and NEXT year, you won't have this problem.

    Thanks~!!
    I'm familiar with Fluent U, but I get the same type videos with Easy German on youtube, for free. You should watch those, if you are studying German. Cari and Janüs (sp.~!!) are really good~!!
    Easy German - Learning German from the Streets - YouTube

    You need to start at the beginning with the first videos; they speak more slowly then. All of the videos have English captions.

    I may have to!

    Apparently, I can go to Germany about any time I request for new product training.

    But I'd like to know some German first!
