Put the box in the coolest part of your cage.
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
cheers i cant see the mites on the snakes anymore now so thats good but im still thinking about using the spray stuff iw as advised to get my only big concern with it is the snakes drinking water off the side of the viv and getting a dose of this stuff.
