So with my Heterometrus scorpion, I've been having a bit of a mite problem. I have a humidifier and heat lamp for her so I know that encourages the development of mites. When she feeds I take a flashlight and scan the entire cage for cricket parts but I can never find any, but it never fails that a week or so later I pick up her hide and there are mites under there WITH HER! There is never an abundance of them but they are there and it makes me so upset I have to do an emergency tank cleaning every 2 weeks... And it keeps happening. Is there any way to prevent this or at least decrease the frequency of it happening?
