Mites and lice can be irritating to small animals and severely impact their health. Origins Insect & Mite spray offers instant control of pests on contact with an additional 6 week residual protection against reinfestation. It penetrates the coat to kill mites and lice in the fur and on the skin.
Mites can cause skin irritation, itchiness, powdery and flaky deposits and sometimes scabs. A severe infestation can result in other health issues such as anaemia and immune system issues. Vetafarm developed Origins Insect & Mite Spray to provide quick and easy treatment of mites and lice and the animal environment. It contains the active ingredients Permethrin; which is responsible for the instant knockdown effect, Methoprene; which is a growth regulator for all lifestages of insects and mites which prevents the growth of insects for up to 6 weeks and Piperonyl butoxide which is a synergist (increases the effectiveness of the pesticide). When treating for external parasites it is important to also treat the environment (e.g. cages and enclosures, huts, logs) to prevent re-infestation and kill any mites that may be hiding in these areas.
(a) To control rabbit and rodent mite (Trixacarus caviae) and Lice (Anoplura spp.) spray directly onto animal by holding spray 30-40cm (12-16 in) from animal. Depending on animal size, use from 1 spray (mouse) to 10 sprays (rabbit).
