    I have (2) 4 week old Sultons and they have little red things on there wings. I have already lost one of my girls to this. They sleep alot and can not walk normal.

    Does anyone have an idea what this is and what I need to treat this.

    You can dust them with Sevin Dust or DE.

    You could also use Ivomec 1% injectable liquid, 2 ML per gallon of water, and make sure that is the only water they drink for a day or two

    "What kind" of mites doesn't matter as much as getting the treated ASAP
