This is the way I always dealt with them , though it may be outdated now , it's quite a while since I kept snakes.

Go to a good hardware store or supermarket and buy a vapona flykiller block .
Open the plastic holder that contains the yellow block , then cut the fly killer into small squares .
You can work out how big the squares need to be for each vivarium by reading the instructions on the packet.
Then put each little square in a small matchbox or similar container that has been puched with many holes to allow air circulation, and hang them inside the vivariums .
Leave them in there for a few days (about 4 I think), then take them out and repeat 10 days later . Always worked for me .

Good luck,
Al..
Oh yeh , don't forget to remove the drinking water during treatment.
