Reptile Relief for mites?

Reptile Relief claims to kill all mite stages, including eggs, and that it can be used to treat enclosures. Everything I have read that recommends RR also recommends treating the cage with Provent-A-Mite or the Walmart equivalent.

I purchased a baby burm at a show this weekend, and I swear I looked him over head to tail, but the lighting where I was standing wasn't the greatest, and on the way home, sure enough I spotted a mite... I'm still kicking myself for not noticing prior to purchase.

We live in a downtown building in a small town. The old storefront is a GREAT reptile room (which is why it was purchased), but the only place to quarantine this little guy is upstairs in a studio apartment with our two spoiled cats.

PAM and other similar products have permethrin in them, which, for whatever reason, is incredibly toxic to cats, so I am hesitant to use them.

Has anyone had any luck getting rid of mites without resorting to permethrin-based treatments?
