>>A heavy spraying will kill the mites and their eggs on the interior surfaces within a few minutes. The residual left after wiping will not kill eggs, but will kill most of the young mites traveling on the interior surface and some of the adult mites, but not all. The key is the weekly spraying of the exterior of the cage and not wiping it off. Most of the mites will migrate off of the snake over time and be killed as they leave the cage. This also keeps any mites from moving through a collection. After doing this once a week for a few weeks, the mites are usually eliminated. It takes a little longer to kill all of them with this method, but it is much safer than any other way I am aware of.
