So I recently got an S. subspinipes and I noticed yesterday that there are mites all over his enclosure. I've done a little searching here and apparantly I'm supposed to dry out the container he's in so the mites won't thrive, but how long do I have to do this? Obviously I can put a water dish in for the pede to get a drink, but how long will he be able to survive dry conditions without dehydrating? He's about 6-7 inches long.
