Q. I have a small pet store. Probably with 100 to 150 mice. The lil black bug is eating me alive. Any treatment for mice to kill these mites
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Topical (not oral) ivermectin can be used to treat lice and mites in mice, and dosage information can be readily found online or through your veterinarian. You may also want to examine and isolate mice that are infected with lice/mites as well as thoroughly clean all affected environments to prevent and reduce the spread and reinfection of mites back to healthy mice. Mice affected should not be sold to the public and should be treated and quarantined until healthy.
