One of my roaches has little white bugs around its face and am wondering if this is just cleaning bugs or something mre serious.Am use to seeing one or two but it was like 4 or 5 of them.I handled the roach after seeing this and he is still really fast seems aware of where he is and health.So am just wondering what the whit things around its face are.

What species are you noticing these on? Hissers have a commensal mite that actually cleans them, doing no harm to the roach so long as their population is not large.
