Crap,I hate,hate those things.Friends gave me a beautiful juvinile pink-pink ceylonese python-it had em-and I didn't know it,so I thought it would be fine to go to vegas for a few days.Even though the snake had a large ( big enuf to soak in)water bowl-he was dead as a hammer when I returned,and covered with those things.Snakes are like fish in that they have very little blood to begin with so mites can kill them in short order.That was years ago,more reciently I got a few on some mail-order candoia.Even-tho I had them seperated,mites still spread(crawled really far)to other tanks.I got rid of them in a few weeks just by washing the animals and tanks with dawn(tanks with toilet paper and flushing it)and over feeding-so they would shed sooner-the best cure.I dont know about poison-never used it,but if your animals have some size to them-get some.The mites mice have are not the same thing as snake mites.They most likely arrived on your new snake(Olive)Toss everything you can and wash surrounding areas-they can travle-Be glad you found them early.jenni/
