100%organic treatment against mites
All cultivators of fruit flies are familiar with the issue of mites.
These small parasites are capable of thoroughly upsetting or even destroying your feed culture. Mites are particularly common in the summer months, when the average temperature is higher. Most varieties of mite will soon have a negative impact on your fruit fly cultivation. Often, the only thing we fruit fly cultivators can do is start a new, mite-free culture, in a different spot from the previous cultures, so as to prevent recontamination. We also recommend not using wheat or oat products for your fruit fly culture.
Now there is a solution for this problem: NO-MITE!
NO-MITE is a 100% organic treatment against many varieties of mites. The main ingredient in NO-MITE is diatomaceous earth (diatomite), 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.
The added herbs in NO-MITE have a sharp, pungent smell that also deters mites.
NO-MITE can also 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 soil.
NO-MITE is very effective and entirely safe for both humans and animals.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
Add 1 tsp of NO-MITE to an empty jar. Add the fruit flies to the NO-MITE, screw the lid on the jar, and shake it so that all of the fruit flies get a good coating of NO-MITE. Before you transfer the fruit flies to your new culture, you can separate them from any excess NO-MITE by using a sieve. We would advise against you adding the excess back into your supply of NO-MITE, because it will contain dead mites – instead, 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 use NO-MITE when creating new fruit fly cultures. However, we advise against feeding NO-MITE directly to your animals.
Dust the spot or shelf where you’re storing your new fruit fly culture with NO-MITE as well.
This will prevent any straggler mites in your cultivation area from infecting new cultures.
NO-MITE is very moisture absorbent, and because most of us tend to maintain high levels of humidity in our animal sanctuaries, we recommend removing the old NO-MITE in your cultivation area and dusting the spot with new NO-MITE every time you create a new fruit fly culture.
NO-MITE has an unlimited shelf life, provided that it is kept free of any moisture.
