Research trials in California, Nebraska, and Kentucky have shown that an experimental paste containing levamisole at a constant rate and famphur at several rates will control both cattle grubs, Hypoderma lineatum (Villers) and Hypoderma bovis (L.), and gastrointestinal worms. A paste containing 11.5% levamisole (8 mg/kg body weight) and 21.6% famphur (30 mg/kg body weight) provided grub control equivalent to that of either famphur (Warbex) or ivermectin (Ivomec) and gastrointestinal worm control comparable with that of levamisole (Tramisol) or ivermectin.
