Provent a mite

I had mites earlier this year. Cleaned the animal with olive oil on a cotton ball. Removed the animal from its cage, sprayed provent a mite on the substrate, let it dry according to directions. I also hung a no pest strip in my snake room. Mites run on a life cycle that completes in 13-19 days—at cooler temperatures some individuals may live up to 40 days. That's why I use the no pest strip one week in the room and one week out of the room. Good luck.
