Default Planaria ovicidal treatment

Are there any planaria treatments that are ovicidal? The common ones (fenbendazole, betel nut extract drugs) are not, requiring treatment to last for up to 3 weeks to allow for any eggs to hatch out and be killed. I quarantine all new live plants for planaria, and an ovicidal drug would definitely speed up the process.
