You don't.
Vapona can be extremely toxic to reptiles. Get a can of Callington's, you can treat viv and snake at the same time and it works brilliantly.

Vapona was used by reptile keepers for years before it was banned. I used it once or twice many years ago. I used a 1" square in a cricket tub and left it overnight - no water. Then removed and replaced in 6 days. Then again in another 6 days. It was the most non-intrusive and effective method I've ever come across.

It was banned in the EU (and in the UK) because it is dangerous to manufacture.

The only Vapona strips that should be on sale in the UK legally are the sticky ones yellow sticky plastic strips. Not the same as the old type. If you think sticky tape is bad DON'T try these.:whip:
