    I am keen to find out more so started a thread in general chat but no response so thought I would start one here where it has been mentioned a couple of times.

    Seems like this stuff is good for worms, fleas and all sorts of pests in animals, general use and the human grade has lots of benefits for us too.

    Anyone had any experience/knowledge of it????

    I had never heard of it either but having read a bit, it sounds really good - possibly too good?

    I was thinking of it for worming mainly but it appears to have lots of other uses. Would be interested to hear if anyone has used it and what they thought of it but it looks like no one has.

    Hi

    I haven't yet used this for my dog, but have been using for the last couple of years around the house to deal with ants and it has been brilliant. We have a very old house in deep countryside and I used to have to put up with masses of ants every summer; I didn't like to use chemicals in the kitchen and they never seemed to work anyway. This stuff has solved the problem.

    I am planning to test it out as a flea/tick control but wasn't aware it could be used for worming as well, so might give that a go too. It can't do any harm, so worth a shot!

    May be I will give it a shot too. Probably go for the human grade to be on the safe side :thumbup:
