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.
Not to hijack but would you avoid using Nix near hognose? Or just avoid spraying the hogs themselves with nix and treat everything else as usual?

I've also recently found myself fighting a mite infestation in my quarantine room. Possibly my main room but so far no signs.
