Just thought I'd ad that you SHOULDNT!!!! spray the snake in the face - do it with your fingers. It's not the eyes that is the major concern (although eyecaps do absorb chemicals put on the eyes which isn't good), but the heat sensing pits. You don't want to be spraying nix into those. Spray the snake's body and do his head with your finger. Then rinse him well and let him soak in regular water for an hour or two - that will kill all mites.
