I've used NIX to treat bushmasters with great success. I dilute a 2oz bottle of NIX in 1qt of water and spray everything, including the snake, except directly on the head.

The only drawback is that NIX will dry the skin out and cause premature dysecdysis, so you need to make sure the snake is well hydrated and mist the cages (at least with bushmasters). I'd guess that with snakes from arid climates, such as southwestern rattlesnakes or desert vipers, this wouldn't be an issue.
