    Day4
    Changed her paper to-day ......no corpses and no mites
    So now I just keep up the treatment for the next two weeks..and if I don't see corpses or mites then I can declare her a Mite free Martha.
    Also this two week period gives me time to set up the new viv.

    Who knows? My threads go wonky on this forum from time to time as well...making double posts and such. Glad to hear the treatments are working! Good thing you got right on that mite issue! Sounds like you did a great job handling it. Keep us posted.

    Re: anyone from UK info needed

    Day 7
    Still no bugs or corpses
    And she has regained her appetitte of sorts ...she hadn't eaten in a couple of weeks (mites???)
    She would Have a couple of pinks or a small fluff every 7/8 days
    But as I live in the UK (land of rain) I was out in the back yard last night and saw two decent sized lobworms trying to escape the the saturated grass, and thought why not?
    So I grabbed them put them on a piece of kitchen towel to dry them, and put one in the viv,she was in her water bowl, she went like a shot and ironically pulled it in to the water bowl (I'm thinking why did I bother to dry them?)and chomped it up, she had the second one too.
    When I got her she would not touch worms, I'm obviously happy to feed her worms if she want's as well as pinks, went to pet shop to-day and got calcium supplement......but how much/many worms do I feed her?
    As always your help is appreciated

    Good to hear there has been no loss of life.

    Her not eating might have been due to the chemical used on her.
    She's been through a lot in the last month.
    Feed her enough to give her a nice lump.
    Without knowing how big the worms are to her it's hard to say the amount.

    I usually feed Cee Cee a couple to three big worms in a feeding. Like Steve said, it depends on the size of the snake and the size of the worms...worms are digested pretty fast. Best rule of thumb is to look for that little bulge in her stomach to know she's full. Cee Cee is 3 feet long and I feed her 2-3 big, fat worms about 7 inches long...for one feeding...I feed her every 5-6 days. She would probably only eat 2 of the big ones now that she is no longer gravid.

    more importantly, no snake corpses either. Feed her until she looks plump, then don't mess with her for a few days. It's not rocket science.
