NO-MITE is a 100% organic treatment against many varieties of mites. The main ingredient in NO-MITE is diatomaceous earth (diatomite), supplemented with herbs that are known to have an anti-parasitic effect.
The chemical makeup of diatomaceous earth causes irreparable damage to the mites’ exoskeleton, which in turn causes the mites to dehydrate.
The added herbs in NO-MITE have a sharp, pungent smell that also deters mites.

Add 1 tsp of NO-MITE to an empty jar. Add the fruit flies to the NO-MITE, screw the lid on the jar, and shake it so that all of the fruit flies get a good coating of NO-MITE. Before you transfer the fruit flies to your new culture, you can separate them from any excess NO-MITE by using a sieve. We would advise against you adding the excess back into your supply of NO-MITE, because it will contain dead mites – instead, discard it.
As NO-MITE is not harmful to either the fruit flies or the animals you keep (the fruit flies quickly shed their coating of NO-MITE and are not negatively impacted by it in any way), there is no limit to how often you use NO-MITE when creating new fruit fly cultures. However, we advise against feeding NO-MITE directly to your animals.
