Red mites in my house!

Post by rubyredshoes » 09 Jun 2013, 18:04

We have taken down a red mite infested wooden house so we can burn it but OH left it propped up against an outside wall of our house. The b**********ers have crawled up the brick work, through the windoww vents and come into our downstairs loo. It is crawling with them. Any suggestions what I can spray which is child, cat and dog friendly? Thank you!!!! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Ant powder, Diatom, fly and bug killer will probably work to some degree.

Usual stuff you'd use outside is usually kid and pet friendly anyway.
