Does anyone know a home remedy for ear mites in cats and dogs?

I got lost one day when I first moved and stopped at house for directions. A whole litter of pure white kittens were on the porch with their mommy. Of course I had to have one. I didn't know he had ear mites and now my siamese, himalayan and persian got them. Also, my dogs. They all get along and sleep together. Since he is a kitten I am afraid to use pesticides on him. Any suggestions? Thanks

  • Just get the stuff from the store, it's cheap and it isn't pesticide.
