Cleaning and Disinfecting

When cleaning up Ball Python (or any other reptile or small animal habitat) use either:

  • 10% bleach to water solution.  DRY THOROUGHLY before re-introducing reptile.
  • Diluted Chlorhexidine Solution spray on surfaces, wipe dry.  Animal may be introduced while still wet.

We prefer the later.  It is safer for your animals, and your clothes.  We purchase a gallon of concentrate, and this will fill a few hundred spray bottles.

    Just wanted to check: I assume that “4%” is a typo and/or when you write “4% chlorhexidine,” you actually mean a 0.08% chlorhexidine solution (since chlorhexidine is sold as a 2% solution and your directions are to further dilute that at 1:24 oz ratio). Is my assumption correct?

      Thanks for the catch. Often when changes are made new errors are introduced. The “4%” have have originally came from a draft of the sentence, and wasn’t corrected. I have updated the text. Thanks again!
