Kill, Repel & Prevent Pests

Get Rid of Mites in 3 Easy Steps

Did you know... Demodex mites—which cause mange in pets—live on the face of nearly every human, eating our skin cells, mating, and crawling around while we sleep.

3 Step Guide




Step 1
Protect Yourself

The vast majority of mites are harmless to humans, but there are some parasitic types—like bird and rodent mites—which are known to bite, causing intense itching or pain. 

If you’re facing this kind of mite, non-toxic Cedarcide Original Bug Spray has you covered. To protect yourself, just spray your skin and clothing, and reapply daily or more often as needed.

Step 2
Treat Your Home

Treating for mites isn’t usually necessary unless you’re dealing with biting mites, but if you are, Cedarcide is a family and pet-safe option for tackling your problem. 

If your mite issue is new and small, we suggest spraying affected spaces like bedding, carpet, and furniture with Cedarcide Original. Reapply every 1–3 days or as needed until the mites are gone. If your mite problem is more severe, fogging your home with Cedarcide Original is the most efficient and cost effective option.

Step 3
Prevent Mites from Coming Back

Biting mite problems are normally caused when the mites’ food source—typically rodents or birds—is no longer available and the mites begin searching for new hosts. For this reason, natural rodent control and preventing birds from nesting in or on your home is key to prevention.

Because biting mites often originate outdoors, spraying your yard monthly with Cedarcide Outdoor Bug Control is also strongly recommended, as is applying Cedarcide Granules every 4–6 weeks. This will help control not only mites but other unwanted bugs as well.

Customers are saying...
"We first used Cedarcide in 2011 to effectively treat an infestation of Bird-mites. Since then we use it to treat everything from fleas, to mosquitoes, to mites, mold, etc. It smells wonderful."

"My yard and patio were overrun with tiny red clover mites. I used to go out a few times a week all summer long with a need oil sprayer but they would just come back. One treatment with PCO and they have been minimal for weeks now. I would also get tiny ants entering my home around the foundation. No more!"

"I have been using it for about 3 years and it works so well to rid my house of ants, stink bugs and mites. I like that it's safe to use around my dog also."
