Mineral Oil Fogging

Does anyone have experience with heated foggers using food grade mineral oil as a successful treatment for mites?

I think that was the "rage" a few years ago, but it does not seem to have continued as a favored mite treatment.

Here is a link to an earlier discussion and information on this forum. There are more discussions on some of the national forums.
