i read that in winter, the whipworms migrate down below the frost line into the ground where they live thru the cold weather. then in the warm weather they migrate back up to the surface. so i guess they hibernate, then come back up to live and reinfect.

How do you kill whip worms?

Whipworms (genus Trichuris) are hardy intestinal parasites of most mammals. They can be killed by oral administration of some antiparasiticides. However, the drugs effective against whipworms tend to be the more powerful drugs; pyrantel pamoate (a very safe dewormer with very few side effects) is not effective against whipworms.

How do you get rid of whipworms in your yard?

Diatomaceous earth applications, feces removal, and litter pick-up are ways to eliminate whipworms in yards. Impervious flooring in outdoor structures for domesticated animals and regular topsoil changes join in making it difficult for whipworms to access hosts and deposit eggs. In the event of invasions, everything from gravel to pavement to topsoil may need to be scoured and substituted to make the 6 inches (15.24 centimeters) of subsurface soil in which whipworms thrive inhospitable.

Is there a soil treatment for whipworms?

Yes. Lime Powder can deminish or eliminate whipworms in the soil if used during the warm season when the larvae are close to the surface of the soil. A lime powder or fertilizer spreader used once a week or just before rain fall sinks into the soil creating an inhospitible climate for the whipworm. The alkalide coating is not a preferred environment for the worm. Hence, over a period of four weeks, most should be eliminated. Ongoing treatment is recommended. This experiment is evidenced through soil testing before, during and after three four week treatments of infected soil. The results were amazing. Reduction of the larvae and evidence of the present of the parasite were reduced by 95 percent.
