Jag sib nosing around

He shed last night and trashed his rub so I scrubbed it out and added a bit more climbing material now his mites appear to be cleared up. He hasn't stopped nosing around since.....

Oh he's looking well & the tongue is a lovely colour too. I'm glad to hear his mites have gone, great job

Buddy,
Don't know how I missed this...senior moments seem to be affecting me more and more as time ticks by....

Mites...if it makes you feel any better, I periodically have mites turn up and I class myself as fastidious in hygiene and husbandry....treat snakes, scrub housings, vivs etc....have removed rugs/carpets...hoover so none of that fluff appears in corners where fluff gathers....no dogs/cat in the room....no people without appropriate footwear etc etc.....and still every few weeks one or two of the little buggers appear... wiping out successive generations is the key of course and that not so easy...being on top of your animals and set ups is key and eradicating as soon as they become apparent is my solution....I've seen a lot of animals kept on bark, shavings and other substrates, these are damp and warm relatively high maintenance and must encourage mites as they do other insects
but you don't here folk talking about them.....

Personally I don't think there's a product or method out there that completely reduces the mite issue so that it's gone forever [I may be wrong] if there is let's start a new thread and talk through it...

Back to the photo....super shot of a beautifully marked and coloured sib.... Very Happy
