How long do I have to wait?

I dewormed Gavyn on the first of this month (I can't remember the name of the wormer, I have it written at work) but it said it knocks out Bot fly eggs in the first dose. Well Gavyn didn't have Bot fly eggs when I wormed him, and I was looking the other day and he now does. I want to re-worm him, but I don't want to do it too soon.
When can I give him another dose of dewormer?

Think you could dose him 2 weeks apart.

That's easy to fix! All you need is a bot knife, run the blade over the areas where the eggs have been laid and that will remove them. Some of the coat may come away too which isn't a problem. Wipe the blade clean frequently - I use an old rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. It may take more than one session but this method gets rid of the eggs. :)

The wormer only removes them from his intestines- not his legs.

No dewormer is going to remove Bot eggs. They must be dealt with by removing the eggs by hand.

I brushed a lot of them off yesterday. I will go again today and work on the rest of them. He does have a rub mark on his tail so I don't know if he does still have worms? Would it hurt him to worm him again? I just want to be on the safe side.
