That strategy has caused widespread resistance in worms – meaning that worms are able to survive the killing effects of dewormers and persist after treatment, which can lead to disease and in worst cases, death. To reduce the risk of further resistance occurring, we need to ensure that dewormers are only used when they are genuinely needed.
