    Provent a mite will work, just need to be used the same way it is used with snakes (remove everything, spray the cage and bedding let dry)

    Cheaper version would be RID to be used like above https://www.walmart.com/ip/RID-Home-...ffe5bb4a9a72a4

    Re: Fancy Rat with lice

    I dilute 1 bottle of Nix Cream Shampoo in 1 gallon of water to prevent/treat mites in snakes. I wonder if something similar would work on the rat? I spray the diluated mixture on my snakes and in their enclosures.
