Methylene Blue

Disease preventative for fresh & saltwater

Methylene Blue
Manufacturer Description:
Methylene Blue is effective against superficial fungal infections of fishes. The drug may be used as an alternative to Malachite Green for the control of fungus when it is known that the fish to be treated are sensitive. Methylene Blue is safe for use with fish eggs and fry for the prevention of fungal infections. As a secondary use, it is effective against some external protozoans, such as Ichthyophthirius (Ich), Chilodonella and Costia. Treats fungal infections.
NEHERP Description:
The most commonly used anti-fungal/anti-disease liquid for raising certain species of frog tadpoles. Suggested dilution in the hobby is about 2 drops per gallon of solution. Once the solution is prepared, we personally add just a splash (around a soda cap full) to each tadpole rearing container as an added precaution against possible infections. Please note: This is a super-concentrated product, and two drops of concentrate are used to make a gallon of solution. Since most tadpole-related scenarios only require a cap-full at a time of the diluted solution, a bottle of this stuff can last even larger breeders years. Always do your research for information on how to use this type of product.

Mite Paper

An effective mite preventative solution

Mite Paper
This is a very easy & inexpensive way to combat mites in fruit fly cultures (and elsewhere, too!). For preventing mites on fly cultures, be sure to start with truly mite free cultures, and roll out a section of mite paper on a surface. Simply rest the cultures on top of the paper, and the paper will prevent mites from reaching the culture, or moving from one to another. Mite paper can work for up to one full year in ideal (dry, low-dust) conditions. To use, simply unroll & cut to the size of your space. Kills mites, roaches, ants, silverfish, and more. Great for storing isopod cultures, fly cultures, springtail cultures, and more. Sold in 18" X 120" rolls. Color may vary.
Sold out & discontinued by the manufacturer
Unfortunately they have been discontinued by the manufacturer according to our supplier. An excellent alternative to Mite Paper is to use plain white paper towels sprayed with Natural Chemistry Mite Spray or Provent-A-Mite. We've been relying on "paper towel mite paper" for going on 3 years now, with great results.

Natural Chemistry Mite Spray

Our best selling mite solution in 8oz spray or 1 gallon jugs

Natural Chemistry Mite Spray
Natural Chemistry Reptile Spray is a patented combination of ingredients that work in tandem with one another to "soften" the waxy exoskeleton of mites. Once the mites "armor" has been penetrated, its internal organs are saturated and the mite is quickly destroyed. Reptile Spray works quickly and effectively to eliminate mites from reptile and their environments. No Pyrethrins or Permethrins.
Spraying paper towels with this product can create an effective "DIY Mite Paper", and we've used it to keep our Fruit Fly, Isopod, and Springtail cultures mite-free for years. This stuff works, and the only stronger product we carry for this purpose is the more commercial-breeder scale Provent-a-Mite.

Our strongest mite killer solution

Provent-a-mite is the only patented, EPA & USDA approved product specifically labeled for use with all reptiles that has undergone more than 25 years of research, clinical testing and use to insure that it will effectively eradicate mites and ticks that feed on your reptiles. Unlike many other treatments, Provent-a-mite poses no potential harm to the host being treated when used as directed. No other product can make these claims! Provent-a-mite is more effective than other products to eradicate or prevent an infestation, with up to 4 times less required per treatment, and is the only product proven to provide long term residual protection. Unlike all other products that stop working when or soon after they dry, Provent-a-Mite will bond to any treated surface and remain effective for up to 30 days or longer, continuously killing any potentially disease carrying mites or ticks. Once dry, Provent-a-Mite will not wash off and can be misted, wiped or washed without eliminating the effectiveness.
This stuff is serious. Do not spray anywhere near animals, and don't put anything near the vapor 'till it's 100% dry. Provent-A-Mite is a professional-grade product, and must be used carefully. This is not like many other mite sprays on the market, in that it works for weeks after it's been applied.
