Hi Mark,
I use NIX too, it's safe and effective.
I wrote up a how-to article on my site

Hope it helps!

Oh, and GreggM, No Pest strips may have worked for you and I am happy to hear that they have killed all mites but...

Have you ever used it?????

Do you know someone that killed a snake with it?????

remove the water from the encloser being treated
If you must use the strips, then that is VERY important!

Like I said I have used this method for many years, maybe even as long as some of you have been alive and I have never had a single adverse reaction
My great-uncle smoked for longer than I've been alive, does that mean that smoking isn't harmful?

Zoe, you make good points, and add to the already strong arguement against Vapona/No-Pest-Strips. It seems our Mark has made the right decision and purchased Nix. Good luck with that Mark, and happy herping. It seems that some people are so adamant about arguing FOR a product, that they are blinded to the facts, and personal experiences of others.

Vic, Nix is used to remove head lice in humans, you can buy it over the counter in pharmacies.

Its active ingredient is Permethrin
