Psydeus565 Posted March 23, 2011 Share Posted March 23, 2011 I've got these mites in the oddest place, they're OUTSIDE the cage and hang out on the top far (1.5ft) away from the food. I've been trying to find time to trace their location, but it's not from anywhere inside the cage as far as I can tell. There is no logical food source near their area, I've been knocking the population down with wet wipes each morning and night, as well as the vaccuum. When I get the chance to watch a little, I may have a source, but this is has me miffed. Also I think I may end up mixing a borax solution to wipe where they hang out, but I'm being super careful around the roaches. I'd try predatory mites but I don't think they'd venture from the substrate up the glass to get their prey. The food in the tank is fully consumed each night and there is not a mite anywhere near the food dish or really anywhere inside the tank. Here's a picture of the tank and the mites as best I could catch them. Any input ect is welcomed before I start insecticiding.... Thanks.
