Three schemes for the eradication of Stephanurus dentatus infections were tested on separate pig farms. The schemes involved regular urine examinations, strict segregation of the egg-negative stock, disinfection of premises with bleaching powder solution, elimination of heavily infected pigs and those with inferior productivity, treatment of sows positive to the urine test and of their progeny with carbon tetrachloride or tetramisole, and the establishment of healthy replacement herds. It is claimed that the application of these schemes will eventually eradicate kidney worms from swine.
