I choose to use the natural worming methods. There are many herbs, fruits, and vegetables known to expel parasites. Of these, we have found garlic and rosemary to be the most effective. We also use diatamaceous earth which our feed mill mixes directly into the feed so the pigs get the advantage of a continuous natural dewormer, which is supplemented once a month by adding 2 tablespoons of garlic to their feed once a day.

I've been shooting it in the butt with my Crossman air rifle, 4 pumps at 25-30 yards. I like to think it will learn to avoid the area entirely, but it may just learn to run when it hears a door open.
