Mites?

I think my Brong, got mites.
Now Both are under PAM treatment.. Just as a precaution.

Look at the eye sockets, mites love that area..

Here is what i did.
clean the entire cage, hide & water dish with lots of soap, dettol & clorox.
Dry them up, then spray PAM. (Provent-a-Mite), while waiting for the treatment to dry-up.
On the Blood, i gave:
warm bath for 5 mins.
warm bath with mild soap for 1-2 mins.
warm bath with iodine solution 1-2 mins.
dry them up. i moisten a cotton bud with baby oil, and moisten the area around their eyes. As i suspect the mites love the eye socket area.
then, i place them in their treated enclosure.
After 2-weeks, going to repeat the procedure.
In 4-weeks, the treatment is complete. It will be mite-free.

Will update on how the treatment goes..
