Rayticulatus No-Mite 475ml
NO-MITE is a 100% organic treatment against many varieties of mites. The main ingredient in NO-MITE is diatomaceous earth, supplemented with herbs that are known to have an anti-parasitic effect.
The chemical makeup of diatomaceous earth causes irreparable damage to the mites’ exoskeleton, which in turn causes the mites to dehydrate and perish.
The added herbs in NO-MITE have a sharp, pungent smell that also helps deters mites.
NO-MITE can be used to combat mites in animal terrariums, such as those of snakes, lizards, tortoises, birds and rodents etc., simply by spreading NO-MITE over the infected substrate.
How To Use No-Mite To Make New Fruit Fly Cultures:
Add 1 tsp of NO-MITE to a clean empty deli cup. Then add some fruit flies to the NO-MITE, and shake it so that all of the fruit flies get a good coating of NO-MITE. (similar to the “Shake and Bake” method to duct flies and other insects with vitamins) Before you transfer the fruit flies to your new culture, you can separate them from any excess NO-MITE by using a sieve or pouring them out into another empty container. We would advise against you adding the excess powder back into your supply of NO-MITE, because it will contain dead mites – instead, simply discard it.
As NO-MITE is not harmful to either the fruit flies or the animals you keep (the fruit flies quickly shed their coating of NO-MITE and are not negatively impacted by it in any way), there is no limit to how often you can use NO-MITE when creating new fruit fly cultures. However, we advise against feeding NO-MITE directly to your animals
