Hi all,
A while back, I was told of beneficial parasites which, attack and kill the mites on Millies, w/o disturbing them. Of course, after my computer croaked, I lost the link and the company name.
Any ideas on this?
Thanks!

the only mites on mills you would need to worry about are the small scale-looking mites that don't realy move around.

the larger faster brown ones are most likely neutral or good and it is generally not suggested to remove them.

Thanks.. :)
My older ones did indeed have the white ones on them, and my biggest girl had pits on her back. I was using a paintbrush to wipe them off, but haven't tried the suggested vasoline; I was afraid I'd smother them
