Abstract

Efficacy of disinfectants used in veterinary, wildlife, and environmental settings were tested on Ophidiomyces ophiodiicola, the cause of snake fungal disease. Bleach and several common household cleaners are effective disinfectants; chlorhexidine, Simple Green, and spectricide were not. This information can be used to prevent transmission of this fungus between snakes.
