Manuel_P Posted April 6, 2017 Share Posted April 6, 2017 Hi I got a group of P. vanwaerebeki "Big" today. I just noticed that the bigger ones all have mites on their body. relatively big mites, to be exact. They are brown and move around a bit, some are stationary. The mites are bigger and darker than the ones pictured in this thread Well, I know that "Princisia" and Gromphadorrhina sp. often have symbiotic mites on them, which apparently even prolong their lifespan.. Now I´m wondering, what are these? Parasites? Symbionts? And what should I do to remove them (if parasitic)? Will post pics tomorrow Can anyome of you please post a picture of the symbiotic mites please? I can´t seem to find any good ones Sorry if it´s obvious, but none of my roaches had mites until now, not even the other hissers.. EDIT: Well, I just found a pic online, they look like an Androlaelaps sp. Should I still remove them? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
