    hey all ive noticed there are fleas in my snakes water bowl now i do own 2 cats and they have been flead recently as the one cat got fleas but i dont get how they get in the water bowl. My snake doesnt have any mites that i can see he looks really healthy and hes a happy chappy as i got him out the other day just to check him over . they have only been in the water bowl twice that ive seen as i change it every day.

    I'd treat for mites just to be on the safe side, i personally prefer ardap, you just empty the viv, spray the viv, let it dry and then put reptile back in...it's good for 6 weeks :D

    get a tin of callingtons and treat as sounds like snake mites, but no fleas won't be interested in a snakes only snake mites and visa versa
