I'm all thumbs for Glades. These guys didn't have hint of ectoparasites (although I treated them anyways). And 2 out of the 5 actually fed on live mice the next day itself. The others are too small for adult mice, so they'll have to wait til I get something smaller for them. I would recommend treating them for mites and such. Other than that, just keep a close eye on them for the next wee or so. But I would say I'm very satisfied with Glades! Good luck on ur order! Gorgeous snakes!
