Why would you want to use it? nix is to treat mites not for when a snake has a large meal.

I know that, if I'm asking then the snake obviously has mites!!!!!

I guess I need to be a little more clear, is it safe to treat for mites after a snake has eaten? How long should I wait to treat her again?

Wait till the lump is gone and treat him. I don't believe that nix will cause a regure.

I'm with Trevor, wait until the lump is gone just to be on the safe side. NIX never caused my snakes to regurge. I fed my Spotted And Kingsnake and treated them three days later and they were fine.
