No More Mites™ Mite Spray
The ultimate mite spray for defense against snake mites.

No More Mites™ is a new mite spray formulation from WhitePython™ that kills any insect whilst remaining completely safe to snakes.

It is a surface and space spray, meaning that you only need to spray your snake’s terrarium rather than put your snake through stress of spraying directly onto it’s body.

This unique, highly concentrated formulation means fewer treatments are required to completely rid your terrarium of mites and at double the size of it’s nearest competitor offers great value for money!

It contains 0.25% Pyrethrins, an extract from Chrysanthemum flowers harvested from sustainable plantations in Kenya and Rwanda and bought back to Britain for manufacturing.

 

DIRECTIONS TO USE NO MORE MITES:

  1. Remove the snake from the enclosure and place in a secure temporary container.
  2. Turn off all heating and lighting and allow them to cool down.
  3. Remove and discard all substrate, replacing it with a disposable substrate such as newspaper.
  4. Replace hides and décor BUT DO NOT replace the water bowl. This can be thoroughly washed separately.
  5. Before spraying ensure that all invertebrates are removed from the room. They can be returned after 24 hours but DO NOT put any pet invertebrates into an enclosure after treatment.
  6. After shaking well, spray “No More Mites” into the enclosure to lightly coat all surfaces.
  7. Leave for 1 hour, to allow the aerosol to disperse, beforereplacing the snake and water bowl.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is “No More Mites”?

“No More Mites” is an aerosol insecticide marketed for the treatment of snakes enclosures and décor. It was originally developed for the treatment of chicken coops for parasites but has been re-branded for use in with reptiles.

What is in “No More Mites”?

The active ingredient in “No More Mites” is a natural Pyrethroid insecticide called Pyrethrin. This is a highly active insecticide that will kill a wide range of invertebrates, including snake mites.

I have heard that these insecticides are dangerous, is this true?

ALL insecticides are poisons that are potentially dangerous if used incorrectly. The active ingredients in “No More Mites” are toxic and may cause side effects if sprayed onto the snake, or if they inhale it. If used according to the manufacturer’s instructions then the product is safe for use with snakes.

How does No More Mites work?

The mite spray is sprayed onto the inside of the snake’s enclosure, including the décor and substrate (usually paper). Snake mites do not spend all their life on the snake and instead leave the host to lay eggs and digest their food. While moving around the treated enclosure they pick up the insecticide that was sprayed onto the surfaces. The insecticide passes through the mites cuticle attacking the nervous system and killing them. It can remain active for 6 weeks after application.

Can I treat my lizard?

No. This unique formulation is designed to remain within the enclosure for up to 6 weeks, meaning any insect that walks around the enclosure can become contaminated and ingested by your lizard. Furthermore, the skin on many lizard species is more porous than snakes, potentially allowing the substance to enter into the blood stream. Overall, we do not advise using No More Mites in any lizard’s enclosure or in fact, with any other animal species except for snakes.

What if my snake shows some side effects?

If you think that your snake may be showing signs of side effects from the insecticide in “No More Mites” then remove it to a clean enclosure immediately. Remove and replace the paper substrate and wash the enclosure out before returning the snake. Ensure the water bowl is washed out and the water changed.

How should I use “No More Mites”?

“No more Mites” is easy to use. Simply follow the instructions below.

  1. Remove the snake from the enclosure and place in a secure temporary container.
  2. Turn off all heating and lighting and allow them to cool down.
  3. Remove and discard all substrate, replacing it with a disposable substrate such as newspaper.
  4. Replace hides and décor BUT DO NOT replace the water bowl. This can be thoroughly washed separately.
  5. Before spraying ensure that all invertebrates are removed from the room. They can be returned after 24 hours but DO NOT put any pet invertebrates into an enclosure after treatment.
  6. After shaking well, spray “No More Mites” into the enclosure to lightly coat all surfaces.
  7. Leave for 1 hour, to allow the aerosol to disperse, beforereplacing the snake and water bowl.
  8. Repeat treatment after 7 days. Do not repeat treatments more than twice.

Do I need to keep treating the snake’s enclosure?

You should initially treat the snake’s enclosure twice, 7 days apart, to ensure elimination of any mites that may have hatched after the first treatment. In the unlikely event that this does not achieved complete control , or if mites are reintroduced, you can repeat the treatments after 14 days. Before starting a second round of treatment ensure the enclosure is fully cleaned, washed and dried.

Do I need to take any precautions?

No special precautions are needed but always follow the instructions for use. As with all insecticides you should protect other animals, fish & pet invertebrates (spiders, mantids, millipedes, etc.) from accidental exposure and do not contaminate waterways with the product. The empty can should be disposed of like any other empty aerosol.

Can I treat any snake?

As with all insecticides there will be some species or individuals that show greater sensitivity. There have been some reports that Hog Nose Snakes (Heterodon sp.) and Garter Snakes (Thamnophis sp.)may be sensitive to mite treatments containing Pyrethroids and these should be treated with care. You should only treat healthy snakes and avoid treating very small or newly hatched animals.

Can I spray it on the snake to make sure I kill the mites?

No. “No More Mites” is not designed to be used in this way.

    Works great, this is strong stuff. I used on my Royal Python collection and all mites were gone within a week. Will definitely be using again!
