Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf is not labeled for hookworms. Unfortunately, there is not a product on the market that is labeled or recommended for hookworms. We recommend that all animals be moved out of the contaminated area for at least 1 year (during warm spring/summer months, longer during cool winter/fall months) and all feces be removed. Keeping the animals out of the contaminated area for at least 1 year should help control the infestation pattern. It is also important to remove feces from the new latrine area to avoid another infestation. Another option is to remove the contaminated soil and replace if you cannot keep out for 1 year.
