WormBoss Drench Searches

Easily find the right product next time you need to drench, with the WormBoss Drenches search.

If, with the help of your regional Drench Decision Guide, you have decided it is time to drench, then choosing the right drench (effective on your property) is critical.

WormBoss Drenches can help you choose a suitable drench through these searches

  • Search by worm type and length of protection
  • Search by drench group, then active ingredient
  • Search by less important worms and other parasites
  • Search by drench product name

The searches not only provide drench product information, but they list which drench group and active ingredient the product belongs to, allowing you to plan your drench rotations. They also say precisely which worms and the stages of those worms that the drench active ingredient targets.

There are also drench resistance notes that describe the nation-wide drench resistance status of the drench active ingredient, highlighting the importance of you doing a drench resistance test each 2–3 years.
