lufeneron is an insect growth regulator and I used this on my dogs to break the life cycle of the fleas. The med was called PROGRAM.

Now in another forum, they are talking about this lufenuron being used orally to fight fungal infections. I am wondering if you used it orally, if it would work on a resistant strain of mite.

oh yeah, I forgot, the nylar (an insect growth regulator) when used in the environment, seems to work to kill and keep the mite population down. I use this, along with Cyonara and I bought them from doyourownpestcontrol dot com.

So, I'm just wondering if the lufenuron taken orally would work for mites or if anyone out there has any experience in this.

Here it states that it is not effective in demodectic mange mites.

You will see it listed way down on the page.
