Will NyGuard Plus treat the house for demodex gatoi mites/sarcoptic mites?

Can I treat walls and base boards, kitty litter area with this for possibly demodex gatoi mites( highly contagious)? Will an IGR work on these mites? I can't find life cycle on demodex gatoi mites. I had a pest control treat for bed bugs and mites. I'm still getting itchy and bites on humans and pets. Vet medicine not working on cats.

Answer:

Unfortunately, there are not really many products on the market that are actually labeled for sarcoptic mites specifically. Steri-Fab is labeled for mites in general and will very likely kill sarcoptic mites. Steri-Fab has an insecticide and an alcohol base. This combination allows for a fast kill of just about any insect that Steri-Fab is sprayed on plus a super fast drying time. Steri-Fab is NOT applied to animals or humans. You should check with your vet and physican for additional recommendations.
