I was under the impression that mites are things that can be brought in from the outdoors. Hence my concern increased now that it's hot outside and our new home didn't come with airconditioning, so we leave the doors open a lot. Open doors = a lot of bugs wander into our home. I thought mites could just jump right into your home.

If we're not getting any other snakes, we have had all our snakes for over a year, what is the chance of one of them getting mites? I'm thinking it can't be ruled out in it's entirety.

I did buy Hot Shot No- Pest Strip at Home Depot before I read this today. Are these the same potentcy as Vapona?
Hot Shot
Active ingredient:
Dichlorvos 18.6%

Inert ingrediants 80%
total 100%

Thanks for the links by the way- they were very informative.
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...

How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?
