who was it? can you describe the table to avoid the name and shame? also did you buy anything else at the show that the mites could have transferred from?

Packaging; If anyone bought from this gent they will recognise it. I bought nothing it could have transferred from. No substrates etc. bought a couple of light bulbs, heat mats etc electrical goods. They were in the boot. These guys rode shotgun with me in a clean rub (f10'd) with heat pad. (Rub was mine from home not purchased at show).

Looks like it could be a seller who speaks the language typed. Very long table?

All new animals should be quarantined (in a separate room) anyway in case of things like this or other illnesses. Good luck getting rid of them. I've never had a problem with mites before but as some people doubt whether they're actually mites is it worth posting a pic or are you now sure they're mites?

Get some frontline from the vet. Spray it on snake, rub all over body, mites die on contact, lasts for weeks, brilliant stuff

Hey, thanks Rob, as per previous suggestion; I tried olive oil and baths everyday for the first week. Have stopped and left them for couple of weeks now and haven't seen anything since re-occur. Fingers crossed it's done the trick, but will keep then in quarantine for a few months. Failing that I'll take to vet and try frontline! Thanks again!
