Re: Mites!!!! OMG we have mites!!!
As far as Nix treatment, yes it's the same that you get at the drug store and I believe it comes in a 56 mL bottle. You use 1 of these bottles to 1 gallon of water, preferably distilled. You can spray the snakes, the cages, and the surrounding areas with nix. I would advise doing so twice a week for at least a month. With this kind of dilution, there are only a few species that would be over exposed (hognose snakes and garter snakes come to mind). I won't touch PAM myself because 1. it's more expensive, 2. Much higher change of adverse effects and 3. Nix has always worked for me.
