  • [Treatment] Dish soap?

    Does dish soap work If I use it on the snakes? I'm waiting for PAM to come it could take 3 weeks and mabe not come at all. Every time I think I killed them another snake has them.. I'm getting pissed lol.

    Dish soap is used in the water that you soak the Boas in

    The soap disrupts the oxygen bubbles in the water

    Creating a nonviable environment for the mites

          Do a search on this site for mites this topic has been covered numerous times.
          Most people as I have had these issues more then I wanted to but I use
          equate bed lice spray.
          But I really prefer just using the lice shampoo 1/10 to water. It works well
          and is at your local walmart or grocery store and you can get rid of the mites today
          do not linger or wait for the pam it could be late or just much harder to get rid of at that time.The eggs could be in the thousands in 3 weeks.

            I keep washing the cages and soaking the snakes, it works for a bit but I have a rack so its not easy to do all at once, I can't really clean the top of each shelf eaither because its so deep.

                You probably already did, but incase you didnt. While soaking make sure to check the eyes. Mite will get between the eyes and skin in the eye socket. Use a wet Qtip to wipe them out.

                      in my experience using dish soap will only get rid of the mites on the surface. I had to deal with mites a little while back and the only thing that really worked was PAM. If you're PAM isn't due to arrive for a couple weeks Its probably a good idea to use dish soap just to provide relief and keep them some what under control until to PAM arrives, good luck!
