Coupastar, can you please post some picts of what you see as a mite problem? Probably a good idea to get a second opinion before you start treatment. If you do need to treat, look for a product called "Provent a Mite" and follow the directions religiously. Or, as an alternate, try predator mites.

Have you actually seen any mites either on the snake or in the water bowl (fairly easy to spot them in there I found) or got reason to suspect an infection? It's not just that he's going into shed and his humidity is too low or something?
