happy jack kennel dip. $22 available at Tractor Supply
kills- fleas, ticks and mange mites. contains permethrin 30%
smells lemony, mix about 1 oz to 16oz water. Do a total body drench, including scalp and face. use a wash rag to spread. Do at least 1 time a week or sooner for 6 weeks. Im 4 weeks in and nearly cured. the bugs don't like this at all. Scabies have a 4 stage life cycle. cannot be easily killed in all stages. Got to stay after them

I forgot to mention, also try to throw your sheets/bedding in the dryer DAILY on HIGH for 20-30 minutes (even if you didn't wash them). The heat helps a lot!

Hi, use a mixture of clove oil and almond oil (1-2 Tbsp of almond oil to a few drops clove oil.) I like the aura cacia brand personally (I think it's a better quality for a grocery store brand), but NOW Clove oil works too, and at a much better price (try www.swansonvitamins.com). Whole foods or Super 1 (or something like those stores) will carry these products.

In conjunction, you can also take something like Michael's Naturopathic Paraherbs to help fight internally.

Wash your sheets at least 2-3x's per week in HOT water. The rest of the time, spray down your bedding and floors/carpet with a mixture of clove oil and water. Just get a little plastic spray bottle from RiteAid, fill it, and add a couple teaspoons of clove oil.

DO NOT use clove oil near your eyes. If you do accidentally brush your hand against your eye area, go washing your hands and face with soap and water. Also a good idea to not use it on your private parts!
