I used mite paper in the beginning, but after watching mites crawl over it apparently without issue, I switched to a DE moat, with each cx cup sitting in a (shorter, slightly larger diameter) cup sprayed with permethrin.

I "sterilize" (not what any of our home attempts are going to do, but hopefully we all know what this means here) my cups and excelsior by keeping them in the freezer between uses, and the media stays in the fridge.

I also dust the starter FFs before adding them to the new cx.
