It's hard to tell you what/if you're doing something wrong because we aren't doing the treatments personally. I hope also that you aren't rinsing anything off and that you are keeping water dishes out for 24 hours after spraying. Also, any loose substrate (moss) should be kept well away from everything, and ditch or bake anything porous. I would also suggest treating at least weekly instead of every 10 days. I think I mentioned in another thread that I actually treat uarantined animals twice weekly for a period.

Something else you could do is buy some sevin dust and sprinkle it around as an extra safeguard, but with proper treatment, nix should do it.

That's all I can think of for the time being. I'm hoping that I touched on something you've missed so we have something to blame for you finding more flipping mites!
To be clear, everyone has been treated for 2 treatments. When we found mites, we sterilized and treated everyone.

We are spraying the heck out of everything. Carpet, tanks, sanitizing the window sills behind the tanks. Even considered sterilizing the cats just in case something is traveling on their fur.

I think we're going to start treating once a week for another month, instead of 10 days. So this weekend is treatment 3. We'll do 4 more treatments. And pray. �� Makes me so mad

Re: A way of mite prevention and treatment, informative thread.

I forgot to ask... so you don't think this might just have been a dead bug laying around that we didn't see for some reason? Like a fluke? It wasn't moving. We didn't see anything else in her tank. And when she soaked nothing came off her. We are treating everyone since we first saw the mites on her, and nothing has shown up on anyone else, so we must be doing something right somewhere, right?

I wish they had local support groups or something for stuff like this, so someone can come over and watch what we do to make sure it's what we need to. I really hate this; I feel so helpless.

It very well could've been.
