Problems caused by reptile mites
The name for mite infestations is (Acariasis.) The snake mite (Ophionyssus natricis) are one of the biggest killers of reptiles in captivity, which is a real tragedy. Mite infestations can be difficult to control, let alone eradicate. The mites feed from their host’s blood supply removing blood and vital nutrients leaving the reptile agitated and anaemic. This makes the reptile far more susceptible to illness, and as the parasites also introduce diseases into the snakes blood supply while feeding, the snake will eventually die. Parasites are conventionally controlled with toxic pesticides such as neonicotinoids and phyretroids, these chemicals however have side effects for the reptiles and the parasite builds resistance against it over time. TAURRUS is a revolutionary natural way to control parasitic mites in the habitat of the reptile. The Taurrus predatory mites feed on various reptile parasites such as the O. natricis Snake Mite. Taurrus does not feed on reptiles or mammals and is 100% safe for you, your pet and the environment.
