Re: Tiny black bugs?

I agree with TRD. If you haven't seen the mites on your snake at this point, they likely weren't snake mites and are likely just insects living in your naturalistic vivarium. I would just keep a close eye on the snake and look over it whenever you handle is to make sure none show up for now. I've freaked myself out thinking that a harmless insect was a mite too many times to count!

If you're really worried, I would get a small spray bottle of Natural Chemistry Reptile Relief. It's really cheap and I've found it to be really helpful in dealing with a mite problem. I always keep a bottle of it handy.
