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.


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.
