I got a new baby Boa on Tuesday of last week, and it was all fine, I put aspen into the viv, and thought nothing of it. I left the snake to settle in for a while, and when I took him out yesterday, I found 2 or 3 small bugs. Mites. I emptied the viv, and disinfected it, and treated the snake using a beaphar insect spray which I got from the shop I bought him from. I cleaned the viv thoroughly with a beaphar disinfectant and put kitchen towel in as substrate, and I boiled all the decor and his hide and bowl for a few hours, to be safe. Today, I took him out, and found a very live mite that fell off him. I also got some conflicting advice. The beaphar spray, says to treat the snake once every 4 weeks, allowing the spray to soak into the skin, but the shop owner said to spray it onto his scales, and wipe it off fairly quickly, and I'd like to know, which is the best to do? Any other advice you guys can give will be greatly appreciate! Thanks!
