One of the best ways to maintain refugia is to use faecal worm egg counts to find out whether your horse requires worming. If you already practice this, you may have noticed that if your horse has a result of less than 200 eggs per gram (epg) you are advised not to worm. This is because a low level of worms is not harmful and actually helps to maintain refugia.
The SMART online planner at www.smartworming.co.uk will help monitor your horses and only treat them if required, thereby helping to preserve the effectiveness of wormers for the future.
