Fur mites on laboratory rodents present a dangerous and sometimes deadly threat. MITEARREST® is an insecticidal bedding developed at Harvard University for the control and prevention of invasive acarids. MITEARREST® is the easiest to use, most effective and least expensive option available to eradicate fur mites.
MITEARREST® enlists the natural nesting instincts of lab rodents to deliver a potent yet safe acaricide to the fur of the animal. When added to standard bedding material, MITEARREST® is readily accepted by the rodents and quickly turned into nests. Existing mites are killed through constant contact with the treated bedding and MITEARREST® will kill new mites as they hatch from their eggs.
