Okay, I have a bit of a conundrum and it is possible that no one here can help but I want to check all my possible avenues.
I have a small colony of waxy tree frogs (Phyllomedusa sauvagei.) For those not familiar with these they are a desert dwelling species and as such are kept pretty much bone dry with minimal humidity.
Over the weekend I noticed mites on them. I know where the mites came from (a snake picked up at a show which has been treated along with all the other snakes/cages as a preventative measure.) However, I can not go spraying the waxy cage as Prevent-a-Mite is toxic to amphibians.
I already have a call in to my herp vet and I am planning a tear down and sterilization of their tank but that will only clean the tank and not any of the mite physically on the frogs.
So, anyone have any suggestions?
