The first treatment kills the worms but not the eggs. The second treatment kills the hatched eggs before they can multiply again therefore no problem. however I am the same opinion as Gulkie.

Treatment same sort of ingredients just different brand names not all wormers cover all types of worms tho , that's why one drop job done ;)

Not had tested, I'm treating as they have never been wormed in 4/5 years and think maybe they should or am I wrong

As I have said Buster have them tested ,in the long ran it will work out cheaper than
Buying worm remedies.

When I went into the one section there was worms on floor and perches, other 2 sections couldn't see anything, not sure if possible for only one lot to be infected or not as feet etc from one section to other

Buster ..it wont matter what you use as long as you worm treat 3 weeks after 1st treatment..

Just as Peter said ...1st kills worms but not eggs ...but most vets will recommend treat again in 3 weeks to kill the hatched eggs b4 they breed again.

3 weeks is supposed to be the cycle, if you found worms on perches and boxes ...i would treat for a 3rd and 4th time(3 week intervals) to try and eradicate.
