    Help

    hey everyone
    I just rescued a pair of garters from Craigslist two days ago. And I just realized they have parasites idk what kind but I was wondering if the mite spray I have would work and changing to a new tank and bedding would help and get rid of all that old stuff. Scary situation for me as I been longing to start my collection and I finally do and thereís mites 😭. Then I found out from the person I got them from there was a third but they had died before they posted the other 2. Any help would be sufficient as Iím already trying to fix the problem

    Keep them as far from other reptiles as possible. Strict handwashing. Use white paper towels as a substrate, to make seeing them easier. I would suggest Provent-A-Mite spray. Be sure to follow the directions to the letter. To help relieve them they could be placed in a container with water to soak. A drop is dishwashing soap that will break the water tension which helps drowned the mites.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.
