Was the substrate dry? Did you remove the waterbowl before you sprayed?

Did you clean the substrate and all other items from the cage when you sprayed it??

If not REMOVE them ASAP rinse them with warm water dry them and repeat give them a warm bath let them soak for a little bit and dry them again.

As for the tank rinse the tank out as well with warm even slightly soapy water make sure to rinse ( and rinse GOOD) and dry the tank before placing the animals back in the tank.

As for thing's that were inside the tank Clean wash and rinse them as well be thorough if you have doubt's about it being clean what's the hurt in doing once more...

I hope this help If you have anymore question.... Just ask Very Happy

snakes racks are with out a doubt less work and maybe i better way to keep them but i really enjoy being able to view my snakes whenever i feel like it with out pulling them out of their cage or rack. im sure as my collection grows ill invest in one or two for hatchlings and what not but i watch my snakes like some people watch fish. they amaze me in everything they do.

i know about the whole womble thing but ive never seen him or any other snake act like this he looks like he developed a case of terrets i have him in a warm tube soaking again for the thrid time and when i put him in there held his mouth open for a few seconds like 8 to 10 like he was trying to reguratate something but hes breathing fine and i dont hear any weasing or any other signs of ri?
im really worried about him but unsure of what to do for him i am never using that **** again i really hope i didnt poison him

Keeping the snakes in their own cage/tub would be a good step to take. I use a mixture of 1 gallon distilled water to 1 bottle of NIX shampoo to treat any snakes I get in for mites whether I see them or not. It will prevent and get rid of mites. You must clean everything and put the snake in a clean tub/cage and treat the old one and the snake. I only have 2 snakes together when breeding. I have used this even on baby snakes with no problems. Give the snake a good soak in it and spray and clean all areas in snake room.
