I did searches on a bunch of threads on mites but didn't really get what I needed.
The little bugs I have are kind of yellowish, I usually only see like 4 or 5 in a tank at a time. Most of the time they are crawling up to the top of the cage.
I have only seen them on a T 2 or 3 times, and it was on it's leg, this is over about a 6 month time.
The weird thing is that they are in some of the dry tanks as well.
So I guess my question is if they are not bothering the T, is it ok for them to be in there?
they don't really bother me as long as I don't see them on the tarantula itself.
I do dry out the tanks once in a while but they come back in a few weeks.
Oh yeh, they are not springtails, that's the first thing I looked into.
Thanks for any help

As long as your tanks arent infested you should be fine. If you can keep them to minimum they should slow down in fall. July, August and Sept seems to be worst time.
