Re: Bill's Mealworm Fruit Muesli and Jordans Muesli

I'm pretty sure when I was looking at cereals that Jordans was way too sugary. Never heard of the other one, I would be wanting a more expanded ingredients list, so which fruit, which seeds :)

Re: ivermectin, harkamectin not sure which to buy

my rats range from 220 to 573 ( though looking at the bucks they don't seem to have them) will 0.5 still be suitable? rather ask and be safe than sorry, though i'm assuming it should be fine if 0.1 is one drop per 50g then 0.5 is one drop per 250g? though maths isn't my strong point
