Yikes. I would strongly recommend avoiding the use of vapona. Nix is by far the safest treatment you can use. It can be used on snakes of all ages and to my knowledge, there have been no negative results from the use of this product. P-A-M has been linked to deaths in snakes, Vapona is IMHO the most dangerous option, and Black Knight is effective, however it still runs a risk and I would not recommend using it on younger snakes or in the same room as inverts, thin skinned lizards, or amphibians. Nix is your safest bet and every bit as effective as the rest of the products out there. Just mix one bottle of Nix shampoo (2 oz.) with one gallon of water, and spray all over snake and enclosure (remove water dish for this). Simple and safe
