Most chemical companies sells in bulk, true, but the prices are sometimes not as expensive. However, borax in general works best by if it is taken also internally only for a couple of days out of a week most of the mites goes away in about a week or two. The usual dose I take if I have that problem is 1/4 teaspoon of borax in one liter of drinking water should help the most based on my experience and its result should be seen within about 2-3 days.

regarding mites I had two large lumps come up in my scalp. And also developed acne like pustules on my face and in my hair eventually found lyeclear which I put on to any pustules that come up and they disapear within couple days I.E. permethrin. Still had the lumps in head which I had tried everything oni. E fungal steroids and insects related. am only now trying the borox for smaller insects. saying to try permethrin for the pustules which may not be acne but a manifestation of some sort of insect .

Use permethrin poweder on your scalp.

Yes, some people say it's toxic but it isn't. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permethrin

After 10 minutes wash your scalp well using lots of shampoo. I did this for the first time 4 hours ago and for the firsts time in years my scalp is lump free. Incidentally, when I looked at the bottom of the sink after I let the water out I could see the dead critters.

Kind regards, Brian
