When the snake uses the box the Hypocaspis mites will feed on the snake mites on the snake.
The Hypocaspis mites will also wander around the inside and outside of the cage looking for food.
You should be mite free in 2 or 3 days, unless you have a realy bad infection, not a couple of weeks.
Hope this helps
Agreed. They worked a treat for me, no visable snake mites in 2 days.
