Postby soufle » 17 Jul 2014, 11:51

Last time I looked for Virkon S for red mite ,it seemed to be available only to professionals.Ive just looked on e bay and there is a whole host of different ways to buy it,in powder ,tablets etc.Is this the same stuff or a watered down version for us plebs to buy and just as useless as everything else?

Vircon S is a disinfectant, so can I suggest Ficam W instead? :)
