Anyone know the lifecycle of the pinworms that affect chameleons. Probably too broad a question; there’re probably many species. Anyways, I’m just trying to work out a one-two punch combo to totally knock out a population.

One does. I’m not worried, the load is very low, but she’s getting panacur. I’m just trying to figure out how long the eggs stay viable, and how long it takes before the adults lay eggs.
