Since mites love to lay their eggs in the crevices in wood I would apply several coats of varnish or clear lacquer... Be sure it is cured and has no sent before allowing the snake back in! To hybernate for breeding remove the snake and put into a lager tub (we use 32qt Sterilite, with substrate and water and secure the lid tightli, Put weight on each end!! No heat but keep at 60 degrees for 2 months! Put her back into a warm cage in spring and add a male for 7 days in, 3 days out, another 7 days in etc for a month.
