Customer: replied 15 days ago.
one pill atm

Bitnit says it doesn't target eggs so what medication will
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
then I can move forward
Customer: replied 15 days ago.

OK. Non is very effective against eggs. The strategy is to wait for them to hatch and target the worms. This is done by Repeating it after 2 weeks. The eggs hatch in 2 weeks. IT kills them then. The other medicine is pyrantal pamoate.  Again its not hundred percent effective against eggs but better then mebendazole
