Re: Tiny black bugs?

I treat all my snakes for ectoparasites once they get in or when I see something that looks like a snake mite.

How long have you had your snake? Not that long if I remember correctly. You could consider a treatment. Snakes come from breeders or expositions with mites all the time.

Don't panic about it, it happens all the time, and many people seem to horror from mites but it's really no big deal. Snakes infested with mites may be more agitated and have shedding issues as a result. I can only imagine it's a real big hazard if you keep venomous species. It's quite easy to treat. I currently have 2 snakes with mites because they are WC imports, they are under treatment with frontline.
