Anonymous: re: Mites on snakes. We had luck using "Reptile Relief" spray by Natural Chemistry. Take everything out, thoroughly spray everything. Rinse. Spray your hands and run the snake through your hands a couple times. Rinse snake. Return snake to enclosure without items and on paper towel (disposable water dish like a plastic bowl, just toss it daily). Repeat spray down daily for 10 days, which should take care of the mites and the next hatch before they can reproduce. Wash your hands THOROUGHLY after.
