Note for anyone about to use Provent-a-Mite on baby rosies..

I treated a new CB2010 female Ariz rosy a week ago for mites, as the snake arrived with mites.

Sprayed Provent-a-Mite in a shoebox, let it dry overnight, then put in substrate and snake. Rosy was in there 1 day when I noticed she was not well. Twitching, occasional gasping, no tongue flicking.

I should know better. I should have not treated a baby with chemicals. Adults do fine, but the tiny size of babies makes them much more sensitive. I should have used alternatives.

I put her in a screen-top cage and cranked the heat up. She has come out from hiding the last 2 nights and flicking her tongue normally as if looking for food. No twitching. Thank goodness.
