This is exciting. Finally an APVMA registered completely natural Worm combating agent.
Livamol® with BioWorma® contains the spores of Duddingtonia flagrans, a naturally occurring fungus found in soil and pasture. It is a non-chemical biological control for the free-living stages of parasitic gastrointestinal nematodes or roundworms of grazing animals, which acts by substantially reducing the numbers of infective worm larvae (including chemical/anthelmintic multi-resistant larvae) emerging from manure onto pasture.
When fed to grazing animals the thick walled spores pass through the digestive system remaining inert (having no effect within the host animal) and out into the manure. When the infective nematode/roundworm larvae become active within the manure, the fungus sporulates forming a fungal web that captures, paralyses and consumes infective larvae.
The commitment to chemical free worm control means an acceptance that there are no silver bullets. Livamol® with BioWorma® is not the answer to all your problems BUT as part of proactive management is a fantastic tool in your chemical free management toolbox.

You'll notice the instructions recommend worming with chemical wormer before commencing BioWorma. If this is not an option for you then talk to us about other chemical free management options.
Available in 7.5kg and 15kg tubs. Price shown is for 7.5kg tub.
No. Once the fungus has consumed the larvae in the manure it will die.
BioWorma® is recommended for strategic use during periods when weather conditions are conducive to larval development and transmission onto pasture at temperatures above 5° Celsius (40° Fahrenheit).
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.
