I have noticed for the last week that the babies have been very, very unhappy about going into their house at night and I figured out why last night. Normally there is an egg in the morning when I let them out, yesterday there was not, so when I went to put them to bed last night I stuck the light in there to see if there was one and I saw these little bugs crawling all over everything. I clean out their house on Sundays and I have never noticed anything during the day before! So I started searching last night and this morning when I could see again, there were a bazillion little tiny red mites all over their house!! I pulled out all the bedding and we burnt it in the fire pit, I got that poultry defender stuff and sprayed down the entire house, they were in all the cracks... Now what? I checked the babies, they don't seem to have any on them. I checked their necks (that's where the internets said to look). What can I do and what do I need to do to stop these evil little blood suckers!?? Could they be clover mites? I am in NJ and they are in all seriousness, all over everything here. They are on the park benches at the playground, on the deck at our house... I have noticed these things all over and never realized they were mites until the infestation... Am I correct that they are mites? Are the babies in danger?
