We have had our carpetrs professionally cleaned countless times gotten rid of our furniture wrapped all our beds in plastic and sealed them up with duct tape vacum the carpets on a regular basis and we have bombed our house about every two weeks for the past couple months and it doesnt seem to be getting any better at all. Im desperate and looking for any help im tired of itching and getting poorer by the day trying to rid these little pest.
A. Mites are very difficult to eradicate and treatment can be very tedious. It may take several treatments to gain relief from mites. We would recommend Onslaught and Exponent. Exponent is a synergist which will help enhance the effectiveness of the Onslaught pesticide. For immediate relief,some people have found applying baby oil on their skin to be helpful.
Q. how to get rid of mites
What do you recommend to get rid of "invisible" mites?
For the control of mites, I would recommend a liquid insecticde with a long residual time such as Cyonara 7.9., Masterline Bifenthrin. Any of these products would work well for mites. Also, we have Demon WP, which is a wettable powder that targets mites as well.
If you are having mites problem while you sleep, we also have mattress encasements that prevent the mites to come out while you are asleep. Our mattress encasement product is on sale at the moment

Q. bites/rashes help!
Hi, I would love to talk with you. I do not know what is causing my rash of about 3-4 maybe 5 weeks. I am additionally having kind of super allergic reaction to the whole thing and have now been put on large dose oral steroids, to try to quiet the rash. I have been getting bites, and then hives from the bites, i think. In any case, i have had a bunch of bites, and daily major hives (hundreds). My husband has had a few bites. We were thinking it might be mites that live on rodents (squirrels/rats in the neighborhood/ & our property) that hitchhike on the dog (and my husband who is a treeclimber and he comes into contact with squirrels alot) into the house/bed, or bedbugs (which we have not seen, tho have thoroughly cleaned/turned the mattress and washed all bedding and have seen no evidence that several articles i have describe) of the bedbugs. If you can call me to talk about it, i would so appreciate it. Thanks so very much in advance. Would love to buy your material that would be helpful. Sincerely yours,
Thank you for contacting us with your concern. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to identify a pest depending upon the bite marks or skin reaction because different people react differently to bites. One way to begin treatment for such situation is to first encase your mattress and box spring. You can also try setting up glue boards near your bed to see if you can catch anything. This way you will be able to better identify the pest.
Q. How do I eradicate mites (soil / bird mites) from my home?
I was told that I have soil mites on my kitchen floor which may be coming from the skylight. I might also have bird mites from a dead bird I found in my lightwell. The mites are on the wall, on the floor in the cracks and in the grout on my tile, on my marble floor, and could also be on the hardwood floor, carpet and fabric/cushion chairs. They could be hiding in cracks of my wood cabinets. How do I kill these mites on all these surfaces as well as in fabric? I've called the professionals and they are no help.
A. Unfortunately, we do not have any products that have bird mites or soil mites on the product label as a target pest. You may be able to use other insecticides that have mites on the label. We understand though, that bird mites are quite different than other mite species, in the ways that you eradicate them. Unfortunately though, we do not have any products that will kill bird mites. We apologize for being unable to better assist you.
Q. Bird mites- NEED HELP URGENTLY!
We have an aviary w diamond pigeons (6) and finch birds (approx 16, make and females) they are laying eggs, some have already hatch. Apparently we have a BIRD MITES infestation. My husband goes inside the aviary to feed and clean. He has rash all over his body w itch. Went to his Dermatology and that was the diagnosis. ~ my questions is: (1)which spray do you recommend to get rid of the mites. (2) what is the perimeter of infestation around the aviary. And last question (3) c are the bird mites carried on clothing inside the house and do they live and reproduce inside the home. Our grandchildren cannot visit us because of infestation. Please what do you advice? Thank you so much for your kindness!
A. We know that bird mites are almost impossible to get rid of unless the source has been rid of because there is no way to treat the birds for the bird mites. Bird mites can be carried on clothes and brought inside. You can continue to treat the inside with a labeled insecticide as well as the perimeter of the aviary, however, you must be careful when applying pesticides around birds. There is no exact perimeter that the infestation is contained in. Unfortunately, we do not carry any pesticides that label bird mites as a target pest so we will not be able to direct you to a specific product. We apologize that we were not able to better assist you.
