Provent-A-Mite

Provent-A-Mite is a strong mite eradication formula for use to treat reptile mites.

Mites are an ectoparasite that prey on the blood of reptiles but most commonly found on snakes. They are not fatal to the animal if found in small numbers but nevertheless must be treated and eradicated to prevent the numbers from spreading. Reptiles mites are highly contagious to other reptiles but not to humans or other mammal pets.

There are many methods of eradication all with debatable effectiveness versus toxicity of the product being used. PAM is one of the stronger substances that must be used with care. It is most commonly used by people with large collections of snakes that need to treat the racking systems and bins. It can, ofcourse, also be used on smaller scales. 

Please see below in Care Sheet for use directions.
