help

Hi all,

I have a problem, got 2 new adoptees about 10 days ago, sav monitor, and a jungle carpet ptython
yesturday noticed that the pyton had mites, spent all night treating him and redoing tank also i did sav monitor for good measure.(they are next to each other)spent hours doing this) In 20 yrs never had to deal with these mites(they are red) i woke this morning and checked on them (my pets) and sure enough the python had 2 running on his head!!! what would you suggest
i do now? is there a good spray or treatment that i may not know of that isnt going to hurt the reptiles? i use a betadine wash to wash them in, broke down tanks scrubbed them out with a bleach and water solution, then rewashed everything2 times
to make sure it was really clean ,put new substat in ,washed all rocks, logs and dishes .
Thank you vfor any feedback.
Susan

In case your search doesn't turn it up. This document is the BIBLE of Nix treatment. By the way, snake mites are specific to snakes only - your Sav cannot contract snake mites. If he has mites of his own, it may not be possible to treat him with nix... I'll leave it to the lizard experts to tell you what best to treat a sav with.

Also, you will NOT get rid of mites with one treatment, even with nix. Look forward to several weeks of repeated treatments. Also, make sure you nix the cage thoroughly.

Hope this helps.

I don't know if this is true, so you mite want to look it up somewhere. But I heard that the red mites were wood mites.

I got a bag of repti bark once and it had red AND black mites in it.

Goodluck!
