lonelyronin Posted October 12, 2014 Share Posted October 12, 2014 Hello I have had a large colony of hisser roaches for about 5 years, and had never seen a mite. Yesterday is was doing a check and saw mites everywhere - there has to be thousands crawling around. Considering I do a check every couple of days (move the cartons, stir up the substrate), I didn't notice any then (or they were in such small amounts, I didn't see them) They are tiny, light brownish in color. I haven't changed any thing in six months - same food same substrate, same conditions. After reading through some other posts, I'm not sure about them - some posts say its ok, some say get those lesser mealworms, others say that they are harmfull. I haven't noticed anymore dead than normal, so I don't think they are harming the roaches, but I'll check in a few days and see. So, any comments, suggestions Laura Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
