Everything you touched on was good, however I would definitely not recommend spraying any of the primary contact substrate with either Provent a Mite or Equate, etc. The interior of the cage should obviously be sprayed, but lay untreated newspaper down for the substrate. Also, if using Equate or any of the lice sprays, you should wipe the excess off the cage interiors after about an hour before replacing the animal. They contain a small amount of petroleum distillate as a carrier. Newspaper or other fiber substrates absorb and retain PAM or Equate, etc and it can be released back onto any animal resting on it. Always be sure to lightly spray the exterior of the cages with what ever you are using and do not wipe off.
