So is that all you treat with? Just EO's in food, Spring and Fall? With the recipes you've posted here before?

I followed those, but still got hammered with mite loads. I'm not saying they don't work, I just couldn't tell in one year of use on mine, and I find mixed reviews on their effectiveness.

I'd love it if they'd work well for me... Maybe I'm doing something wrong...
