Just thought Id add to what Nicky said...You'll need to repeat this once or twice. The adults will have laid eggs, which the frontline wont kill, which will hatch after you'v cleaned everything and re infect the whole tank again. :lol:

Just thought I'd mention we can now get Provent-a-mite here in the UK now :D I used it for my BP when she got mites (I'd heard frontline is really only suitable for cats/dogs not snakes though I know it has been used for them).
Before that I got something called Bye Bye Mites and it was soooo greasy and horrible and not effective on eggs (which can stay hidden up in top corners of vivs and hatch out later).
