Question by mariapaula_5: ill my snake get mites?
I was handling my school snake and she has mites ….. Will I pass this on to my snake at home
Answer by Lee S
Yes. Take care to clean both cages thoroughly everyday. If you are not already using newspaper as a substrate do so, there is nothing better. Do take objects from outdoors and put it into snake enclosures, this is a sure fire way to bring in the mites. You can soak the snakes and even cover them lightly with mineral oil to help get rid of the mites. Be careful not to get the mineral oil into nasal passages. Mites are a pain, but can be gotten rid of and avoided in the future. Take care and good luck!
