Hi Merry Beth,<quoted text>
Buggie did you get the fogger along with the cedercide and did that kill the mites? I am thinking about the fogger and wondering if that is the way to go? Tell me all that you guys know about it.
I don't need to spend the money but I need to get rid of these?
Thanks for all the infomation.
You might want to try the cheaper remedies first and see if they help you.
I believe I had a combination of birdmites and collembola (pigeons have pigeon mites, pigeon fleas and pigeon lice) from the hundreds of pigeons who lived overhead and my problem started when I started using the rooftop air conditioner. It finally dawned on me about the roof air conditioner after about a year. I also saw dead lice on top of the washer in the community laundry room where I lived.
I never had the rashes and itching of scabies. My skin was clear.
I did infest my workplace, my car, and 3 houses. Best Yet by Cedarcide sprayed stopped me from infesting those places and I could have a job and go out in public. I took the personal spray bottle with me everywhere and sprayed it all over me including shoes and socks during my work breaks while hidden in the bathroom. I worked in a large call center where perfume isn't allowed and somehow no one ever caught me because we had to switch workseats a lot. I've been complimented on the aroma quite often but some people don't like it.
Yes, I bought the fogger and a few gallons of Best Yet. Yes, it's expensive but I was also talked into buying stupid stuff (by my roommate) in the beginning which didn't help at all. I think it's better to buy just what worked for people on this forum. Cedarcide's PCO didn't help my laundry I don't recommend it. If you have traditional scabies like most of the other people here, it's possible that you could work on it with cheaper products. I like Cedarcide because the bugs I had were jumping from the floor and were also airborne and breathed in. It depends on their stage if they can hang in the air like dust particles. Fogging the house gets rid of all that and there's a fresh clean scent. I fogged the house quite often (always with a big fight from the roommate never failed). The more the better it's not toxic, but cover all electronics air vents or you'll kill them). It's also great on leather.
If you can't spend the money, make sure you're using Arm and Hammer powdered laundry detergent for all laundry forever, soak in it but don't breath it, wash laundry in hot hot hot water. SKF cured herself and house with it after 4 years and it's CHEAP. Oral Ivermectin (horsepaste apple-flavored $6-12 feedstore) and pomado de azufre cream ($5 walmart, kmart, cvs Spanish labeled products section near pharmacy) on my skin REALLY made me feel like I was not spreading bugs to anyone at all. I started visiting friends again and returning hugs. Borax and water for cleaning, Windex for cleaning, don't breathe. Bleach ruined all my clothes and shoes, alcohol ruined my car interior and thrashed my skin.
I have also heard good things about Lysol spray. I haven't used it yet but will buy it at Costco to spray on my daughter's sofas that dogs have laid on for two years and they have never once been vacuumed. The dog mites find me if I sit on those chairs. If it was my house I'd throw the sofas out. Denial is a big part of this and my daughter has it.
