Default mites

ok here's the deal guys, the super tiger i bought i found out today has mites. i decided to interact with him some and within a minute i had 2 mites running on my arm, i quickly put him away, now this is the first time ever i had to deal with mites, i have an appoint for him this tuesday, i decided to just take him to the vet and get an ivemectin shot, one shot takes care of it, other then what cleaning i'll need to do in the cage, arg, this just ****s, my ? is, i have him in quarantien in the bedroom next to the bedroom the other reptiles are in. i'm hoping if anyone else here has delt with mites, do you know if mites may leave the cage and find my other snakes? I really am hoping that since i bought him inshed, may have saved from my other reptiles getting these mites, and i mean by this is because of him in shed i have only held him 3 times. with today being the longest i held him. i'll have to decide what i'm going to do with the others, i'll have to watch them like a hawk, and pray i got lucky and only have to treat the one. my fingers are crossed. thanks for any advice

It's possible they could have gotten it. Just check them real good. Mites will attach themselves to you and your clothes and travel that way.

Not to be a downer, but, if one of your critters get them, it's likely that all of them will. :/

ya i'm afraid of that , i'm just hanging on to a little glimmer of hope that having the retic in the other room will spare the rest of them.

I'm fairly sure Brandy has mites as well now I haven't seen any on her, but she's been spending a lot of time in her water bowl .... I don't know where she would have gotten them if she does have them Cause if she has them, she got them well before the reptile show.
