Re: Tiny black bugs?

I would recommend a complete clean of your cage. F10 Veterinary disinfectant can be used to kill any insects on your snake. This is available on amazon. Use only a 10% solution (mix one part disinfectant to ten parts water). This can be expensive, but it will last you forever. Put the snake in a container of the mixture, while making sure the snake's snout does not go underwater. Use only sterile paper towel as substate and use a 10% bleach solution to clean all the décor in your snakes enclosure. Deflea (also available on amazon), should be sprayed on the paper towels prior to putting them in. Do this for a minimum of 30 days to ensure all mites, or insects are dead. Then, you can go back to what you had before.

This is just to be on the safe side, if you do this properly a vet trip is not necessary. They can also be quite expensive.
I am no expert. I’m just knowledgeable in reptiles, I’ll do my best to help you.
