Does anyone know about a product called raybon. The people I am getting horse manure use a salt lick that contains raybon to controll flies.

Is this deadly for my worms?

How long untill it breaks down?

Thnaks for any help.

never heard of it, and apparently google hasn't either  :)

I doubt a fly repellent would have much effect on earthworms, or that there'd be much of it in the manure or urine .... what may be a concern would be the worm meds frequently fed to horses, although I haven't seen any problems with it myself

Thanks Bill

I am very careful to make sure all manure is seperated from the horses for a "minimum" of a month before the worms get it.

a real good policy is to run thru along with the stable bedding [straw or wood chips] and - will take care of any possible problems with horse meds, but more important, insure there's not an excess of nitrogen that may cause heating in the worm bin
