More information on Ear Mite eggs:

Yes, ear mites, like other types of mites lay eggs. The life cycle of ear mites is about 3-4 weeks. The first stage of life cycle is the egg. Ear mites lay eggs inside the ear variable in number. After the egg hatches larvae comes out which changes into nymph.The nymph has two stages the protonymph and deutonymph. From the deutonymph adult mites arise. Ear mites breed before they are sexually differentiated, in their nymph stage. After breeding if an ear mite develops into a female it will become gravid and lay fertile eggs. In case a male develops it will start breeding other nymphs and the cycle repeats in this way.

Some ear mites treatment products are only suitable for the adult and nymph stages and do not necessarily destroy the eggs. In such cases usually a second application of treatment is advised after 3 weeks to kill the next adult or nymph generation.

Treating Earmites – 2 Traditional Treatments:

There are basically two lines of treatment for ear mites, the systemic one and the local one. In the systemic line of treatment antiparasitic preparations are given through parental route. While in the local treatment the medicine is applied locally on infected parts. Both types of treatments have its own advantages and drawbacks.

The systemic line of treatment is more effective as it reaches all parts f the body through blood and kills ear mites there. The local treatment only has its effect limited to its area of application. Systemic treatment may produce some untoward side effects at times contrary to local treatment which is always safe.

A combined course of both treatments along with preventive measures for spreading of the infestation is the most successful practice. Any treatment for ear mites should always be accompanied by proper preventive management practices and following strict hygiene measures. An on time treatment plus proper control practices will result in a mite free happy pet.
