I have had my first 2 mice for 10 days and they were treated for mice 11 days ago (the day before I got them). On the forum most people say that they treat their mice regularly, So I was just wondering how often I should be doing it. The stuff I have is Bob Martin-My little friend-Spot on.

Merci in advance

I dont know about anyone else but I do mine every 6-8 wks or more depending on new arrivals from outside my mousery. Also i only use Beaphur from [email protected] not sure about the one you have I have heard that some brands are not very good but not sure which ones they are, a lot of people on here use Beaphur :)

How are the babies could you post a few pics would love to see how they are growing :)

I do mine every 3 months and any new arival once they have setteled in there isolation tubs then they join the others after the all clear. I use the same product as you and have found no problems with it other than a little bit of the runs the next day I think its from them cleaning it off each other lol but all healthy and otherwise no mites or problems.
Hope this helps

They don't like tea tree, which is a natural antiseptic. Spraying your cage with this mixed with water after you have disinfected and either wiping it off again or letting it dry would be ok. To be honest all I do is use pet safe disinfectant and I don't have problems with mites at all. They are much more likely to get them in hot weather or from other people's infested stock, so don't worry too much.
