About this deal

The main use for Taurus SC is for protection against subterranean termite infestations. To accomplish this, an outside barrier treatment is made in the ground around the foundation of the home that will protect against termites for up to 10 years or more. Here are 7 good reasons why you should ditch the chemicals and use Taurrus predators instead. 1. Mites can cause serious health problems Gnathosoma (Figures 4C, 7A –C) — Resembling the female. Palp (Figures 4C, 7A) 290 long. Chelicera (Figure 7B). 195 long, cheliceral seta 18. Subcapitulum (Figure 7C). 221 long, 122 wide; lengths of ads1–ads2: 13 and 3; lengths of hg1– hg4: 19, 22, 11 and 56. Distances of hg setae: hg1-hg1 8, hg2-hg2 25, hg3-hg3 39, hg4-hg4 84, hg1-hg2 33, hg2-hg3 94, hg3-hg4 37. Ingesting feces, eating affected food, and living in unsanitary conditions can lead to your snake catching intestinal worms. Most of the time, owners don’t know about these things until the snake starts showing symptoms. Diagnosis of worms in snakes Dorsum (Figure 6A) — Resembling the female. Proterosomal shield 130 long, 166 wide; hysterosomal (median) shield 33 long, 39 wide and lateral plates 22 long, 8 wide.

This is because they have a flagellum, or whip-like tail for locomotion. Abnormal behavior or a decline in body condition will be the first thing you notice when your snake is affected by intestinal worms. When you see either of these, look closely and observe your snake for any of the following symptoms:

Mites are thought to be able to able to transmit at least arenavirus (which causes IBD) -- at least, such seems to be presumed by virtually all the snake arenavirus studies in the last decade. Since the QT process has not ruled out virus infection, prudence dictates treating all snakes as carriers. Ban any fur bearing animals from the area, and wash clothing immediately. I personally believe, the damn things came from a show on our clothing. And migrated around the house the same way. I think springtails are eating snake mite eggs. I know a fair bit about mites, but dont know a great deal about springtails. I do know they are not predatory, but do eat "organic matter" - so my assumption is in absence of a food source within the enclosures (other than snake waste), they have been feeding on the mite eggs that have been laid around the enclosures. Snake mites rarely lay their eggs on the snake themselves, and opt for areas within the enclosure - if they have been eating them, this explains the break in the cycle of the mites, and the boom in population numbers of the springstails.

Also be careful to prune away vegetation including shrubs and tree branches that may be touching the side of the house. This will keep pests from using shrubs and tree branches to bypass the protective barrier you sprayed. Taurus SC Termiticide Features Please do not use Taurrus within 2 weeks of using a chemical product. When Will I Need To Replace The Taurrus? Taurus Mites are believed to be native of Reptile burrows in Africa, and so are believed to be the natural predator of the Snake Mite Snake Mites (Ophionyssus natricis) are a small parasitic species of Mite that feed on the blood of most Ectotherms. They are well adapted to pushing their heads between scales to reach the soft, easily pierced skin of their prey, whilst remaining difficult to scratch off.
