Important information for successful Bio Control of reptile mites

1) CLEAN OUT

If possible remove old SUBSTRATE from the terrarium or rack in order to reduce the number of mites and accelerate the effects of Taurrus. Taurrus mite predators like organic substrates. Add fresh 
wood shavings, bark
 or coco peat etc since an empty housing is not ideal.

 

2) APPLY IMMEDIATELY

Use Taurrus on the day of arrival, since it has very limited shelf life. Gently shake the Taurrus container for 20 seconds to blend the contents

 

 

 

3) DISTRIBUTE TAURRUS

Fill the PREVORUS slow release tube 
in case you need to use this. Evenly distribute the remaining product over the bottom of the terrarium. The more predators released, the quicker the results, there is no risk of overdosing.

 

4) WAIT and SEE

Taurrus predators will consume up to 95% of the snake mites within 10 days and stay active for about 3 weeks. The predators will die after they have consumed the snake mites. Breeders ideally use Taurrus as a preventive solution every 4- 8 weeks.
