APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:


Place MITEARREST bedding directly in rodent cage to be treated. Use 2-3 MITEARREST balls per week for each rodent. Avoid wetting the MITEARREST bedding; to prevent cage flooding, care should be taken to place MITEARREST bedding away from the water bottle spout. Replace soiled MITEARREST bedding; it is recommended that fresh MITEARREST bedding be added weekly, at the time when other bedding is changed. Continue using the product for four (4) to six (6) weeks, or until mites or their eggs are no longer present in the fur of rodent. As mite eggs are not affected by this treatment, extended use of the product (until all eggs have hatched or are no longer present) will provide greater long-term control and prevent reinfestation.

STORAGE: Store at room temperature. Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage.

DISPOSAL If empty: Do not reuse this container. Place in trash or offer for recycling if available. If partly filled: Call your local solid waste agency or 1-800-234-8425 for disposal instructions. Never place unused product down any indoor or outdoor drain.
