Wipe the oil in a thin layer over their scales; it cuts off the air supply to the mites, mites die and ker-ching!! Problem solved. Additionally vegetable, olive oil etc is far less likely to cause a reaction than mite medications so can be safely used around the eyes and mouth (if you can get the snake to stay stil long enough!)

I've not heard of that... maybe if it's not washed off properly it can leave the skin too soft to pull away, though? Hmm. Gives me something to think about anyway!
