This study evaluated the efficacy of A. Sativum in controlling nematode parasites in Blackhead Persian ewes in third parity in Zimbabwe. A completely randomized design was used in the experiment. There were four treatment groups with three animals in each treatment under four varying inclusion levels of A. Sativum. The fifth group constituted the control where animals were dosed with the conventional dewormer, Valbazen, as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. The trials were carried out from… Expand

Management of Tomato Parasitic Nematode through Organic Nematicides in Peshawar, Pakistan
TLDR
The nematicidal properties of botanicals are recommended for the safe and cheap management of the prevalent root knot nematode by farmers for the use of these naturally occurring organic nematicides instead of commercial petro-chemicals that have ill effect on the authors' environment. Expand
Assessing the usefulness of mineral licks containing herbal extracts with anti-parasitic properties for the control of gastrointestinal helminths in grazing sheep – a field trial
TLDR
There were no significant differences in the prevalence and intensity of helminth infections between the treatment and control groups, and the efficacy of the commercial herbal de-wormer tested for the control of gastrointestinal helminths in grazing ewes and their lambs was not able to ascertain.

ALCOHOLIC TINCTURE OF GARLIC ( Allium sativum ) ON GASTROINTESTINAL ENDOPARASITES OF SHEEP-SHORT COMMUNICATION
The continuous and indiscriminate use of anthelmintic drugs has caused a growing problem of parasite resistance to conventional treatments. In this context, plant essential oils and active componentsExpand
A comparison of the effectiveness of the aqueous extracts of garlic, castor beans and marigold in the biocontrol of root-knot nematode in tomato.
TLDR
Results showed that tomato is susceptible to RKN infestation and the application of botanicals significantly (P < 0.001) controls RKN by reducing galling and reproduction and further tests will establish optimum concentrations. Expand
Evaluation of a Marketed Polyherbal Dewormer Against Intestinal Strongyles in Naturally Infected Donkeys
TLDR
Faecal egg count reduction tests showed very negligible or no reduction in number of strongyle eggs for donkeys in the phytotherapeutic treatment group compared to those in the control group, indicating the herbal dewormer was mostly ineffective in reducing fecal egg counts in donkeys infected with intestinal strongyles.

The influence of breed on the susceptibility of sheep of Haemonchus contortus infection in Kenya.
TLDR
Investigation of the relative resistance of six breeds of sheep to Haemonchus contortus infection in Kenya found that there were consistent differences between the breeds, but post mortem findings confirmed that differences in faecal egg count were related to the establishment of worms rather than larval inhibition or the suppression of worm egg production.

Value of present diagnostic methods for gastrointestinal nematode infections in ruminants
TLDR
Diagnostic tests have a role in confirming the clinical diagnosis of parasitic gastroenteritis, but are more important for herd health monitoring of nematode infections, in particular for cattle, so emphasis is placed on discussing the available diagnostic parameters on their usefulness for that purpose.
