How soon after you begin treatment do you start to see results? We did all the tanks last night with the PAM stuff, gave everyone a bubble bath in Dawn, put the JurassiMite stuff on them, and put them on top of paper towels once the tanks had aired out for a little over 4 hours. That was late yesterday. Looked into the known infected tanks, and I'm not really seeing copious amounts of dead black things, like I would've expected. So we applied a second treatment of JurassiMite to th snakes we know are infected, and I'm still not seeing a whole lot of black things popping off their bodies and fleeing into their doom of a PAM barrier.

Now I've had a flea infestation once while I was a cat rescuer. I put that flea spray on the cat with fleas, and it was literally like rats fleaing from a sinking ship. I would've expected to see the same thing with snake mites. Is this a bad assumption to have?
