The latest name for the old Shell No-Pest Strip is now the Revenge Strip (I bought one from Lowes 2 years ago). I cut it into smaller pieces with scissors and then threw away the scissors. Then I wrapped them in Duct tape with one pencil hole in a side for less exposure and safer handling.

I've put only one on the top of each treated cage, outside the screen, and away from the water bowls. The poison is quite strong & odorous, so ventilation is important.

I recommend removing the strips and giving the snake a break 2 days per week from the constant exposure. You definitely want to use only a small amount of the strip per cage and change the water twice a week. Use even less poison for smaller snakes and keep it away from children.

Good Luck Megan. Please keep us posted on your results with Predatory Mites. I would like to get away from the chemicals myself. I still have about 80% of my Pest Strip resealed in it's original package. It may remain toxic one hundred years from now, or longer.
