NOW is the time to deworm for tapeworms and bots. One deworming with Equimax after the first hard frost will take care of parasites the rest of the winter. Tapeworm eggs are not usually found in the feces because they do not float in the typeical fecal lab test. Your best bet is to deworm with Equimax once a year to keep the tapeworms under control. Equimax will also ill the bot larvae that are residing in your horses mouth or GI tract before the winter. It is best to follow this deworming with a removal of bot eggs on your horses legs and shoulders to prevent future infestation. Dont forget to get a fecal count in the spring, and then only deworm those horses that are heavy shedders.
