    Question Mites treatment

    What treatment do you use to treat mites? Is spray ones better than live Taurus Mites ?
    I found today one mite on my BP, after inspecting his body I found no more, no other symptoms are presented, he is not soaking and he also took a meal few days ago. I cleaned the enclosure, took out everything except the two hides and water ball( which I cleaned as well). Now I have him on paper towels and I ordered a Spray mite treatment that you spray straight on the snake and inside the enclosure but I have a lot of people telling that sprays do nothing and is better to use the taurus mites. Anyone that has tried both and have an opinion??
    Thanks

    If you only found one mite and no evidence of more, seems like the Taurrus mite route is a bit expensive and overkill as well. I'd go with the mite spray at first.
