Duddingtonia - Update
BioWorma and Livamol with BioWorma are now registered in Australia, New Zealand and the USA by International Animal Health Products Pty Ltd (IAH) www.iahp.com.au. For Australia and New Zealand, the products are expected to be launched in July in readiness for the spring.
For the USA, while the company has US EPA approval, our understanding is that they will now need to apply to each state before commencing sales. We will update you when more information becomes available.
Product claims: Natural biological control that captures and consumes infective worm larvae (including chemical/anthelmintic multi-resistant larvae) within the manure of grazing animals. There are no negative effects on non-target soil nematodes, earthworms, microarthropods, soil bacteria and fungi. Beneficial insects feeding or breeding on manure (e.g. dung beetles, fly larvae) are not negatively affected by the presence of Duddingtonia flagrans. Manure decomposition is not altered by the presence of Duddingtonia flagrans.
