 MItes!?

I Haven’t been on at Reptic Zone in a few years..But! I still know this technic First you take a bottle of RID made for human lice. Should say "Lice Killing Shampoo" You clean the snakes cage with Nothing!! But newspaper for bedding, no water bowl, hide out anything mites can hide in. Even if they’re not mites still do as I say:) You don’t mix the shampoo bottle with any water. When the cage is clean with anything in it, I’d use "Listerine" to clean the cage with. Read the bottle as what it does. If you want to know exactly why I recommend it I’ll give you a site for. You take 3 drops of Lice Shampoo in the empty cage, leave it for 10-15 minutes(Might be deadly to put snake in right away) When that sets in, you take the snake, give him a warm bath in your sink, after with the water running you take any kind of oil and rub it all over him/her for 5 minutes then rinse it off. After, you take the Lice shampoo and put a few drops and proceed like the oil part. Keep on with it for a few weeks and they’ll be gone:)
