Wormer wait?

Should you wait till there's a "killing frost" to worm your horses? Because of the bot flys!?

I always wait until a hard frost to deworm my horse in the winter on my vet's recommendation. It's not about bot flies for me since they're not a problem in my area, but a hard frost will kill off a lot of different types of worms so the chance of reinfection soon after is significantly lower.

I wait for the killing frost or hard freeze in my area, then deworm and scrape all the bot eggs off. I scrape whenever I see them but I make sure to get every single one after the frost.

I wait too. I don't know if it really works that way, but it makes me feel like they are "clean" over the winter if I wait for a good freeze.
