Just bought wormer for my little ones and there is way too much... date on pack is June this year so it wont keep that long, have taken out what I need for my big guy and there is still enough for a couple of big uns or a few lil uns.
Anybody want it? I hate waste and am happy to post on to anybody who needs it.

I would imagine they can pick up all sorts of things when outside and also when being fed weeds. I pick or grow my own weeds but even when washed you just never know whats laid eggs on them.

You are welcome to it if you like Gemma x

I believe its best to know if your torts have got worms or not before using the treatment. Bruce is right that a lot do have worms but the worming treatment is a shock to the system and you also need to keep them on newspaper whilst it's doing its job and thrown out all the substrate.

You can get a test done to find out if there is a worm problem. If there isn't a problem, I personally don't use the treatment.
