When working with your own long term, established collection, I do not believe that it is necessary. However, any new arrivals in quarantine should obviously always be worked with after your established collection maintenance, and you really should use cheap latex or equivalent gloves for each cage as opposed to hand washing when working between quarantine cages. All equipment used should also be disinfected after use and never allowed around your primary collection maintenance equipment. The best gloves I've found for the money are nitrile/latex at $6.00 a box of 100. They are stronger and easier to put on than cheaper straight latex ones, and aren't as slippery when wet.
