Default Hognose Covered in Ticks. Donny.

Just driven back to London from Donny.
Purchased a pair of Albino Hognose.
Checked them out while I was there and all good. Got back and taken them out of car; both are absolutely covered in little Black Ticks. Really frustrating.
I know a can treat this but I have a reptile room with 8 large royals I don't want to pass this onto.
If I keep them in containers away from my rack will it still spread? Or do I need to keep these guys in a totally different room until treated?? Quick suggestion please guys.
Also, best tick treatment to purchase? And anything I can do here tonight that may help? Thanks!

Sure they are mites and not springtails?

Different room.

Use anything but callingtons. Enough people have reported issues using it with hoggies that I would be wary.

How did you not see the little black mites on little orange snakes at the show in the first place?

Sorry, mites.
Yes didn't see them. Checked them both out and all looked well. Maybe change in temperature bought them out?

get them in a bath and then lather in olive oil, replace the containers altogether, then repeat the bath and oil process each day for 4-5 days, has worked a treat for me in the past without using nasty chemicals, good luck

A pair of Albino hoggies covered in mites yet you couldn't see the things on such light coloured snakes? Should've been very easy to spot.

My advice, be very very careful and keep these new snakes away from your collection & be doubly careful about the prospect of exposing hoggies to the chemicals normally used to treat mites, these snakes have bad reactions to the chemicals and, not to scare you, but a few people have had their animals die (I believe) due to being exposed to them.

Good luck.
