Personally I use Flubenvet.  It is very effective and easy to use. 

The natural stuff is a preventative, but doesn't actually kill intestinal worms.  It doesn't touch gape worm either.

Vinegar helps but again, it is a preventative, so don't rely on it.  I use granulated garlic in their feed.  You can buy big bags of it from a countryside store, where they sell it as an additive for horse feed.

They just get a sprinkling into the feed hoppers with their pellets about twice a week, then Flubenvet every 6 months.  Apple cider vinegar and/or garlic can help you keep worming down to just twice a year, so yes I think they are both worth it  :)
