My pet ants have become infested with mites yet again. The Platinum Dragons, the name given to our young colony of Polyrhachis ants have been growing slowly, and at one point seemed to be winning the battle against a mite infestation they were dealing with when we first got them, but now, the mites have returned.
However, a discovery this week has lead me to change my mind about the swarms of mites that continue to plague our ants of the Ant Room. Join us for today's informative in-depth look at the world and intelligence of mites! I also have some exciting updates on some of the other ants and creatures of the Ant Room. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

I have an even crazier hypothesis: the mites latch onto the ants for warmth during the coldest months. P.S. If you've not already named the tarantula, someone mentioned Aurora. I think its the best name.

Hello Ants Canada, it’s something that you have a video about mites. I’ve had an experience with mites and it’s not been so fun. The mites I’ve been dealing with are quite different than the ones you have. These mites are so fast that you can barely see them when they are moving. But you can if you pay close enough attention. They are known as Paratarsotomus Macropalpis. And they are the fastest creature on earth literally. I live in Ga and I’m pretty sure I caught them from an Amazon package. Anyhow, my wife and I have been struggling with them for over a year, then we moved. We did everything we could to try to leave the mites behind, but still a few seemed to make their way to our new home. Frustrated, I got an idea, FIREANTS 🐜! So desperately trying to get some sleep, and frustrated because I felt the mites crawling all over me, I went outside and scooped about 10 - 15 fireants into a bottle and brought them inside. I literally put the fire ants into my bed with me, and prayed to The Father that they would not bite me. And they did not bite me one time. But they must have hunted down and bit the mites because within 2 minutes of laying in the bed with the fire ants, I felt absolutely no more mites!! Since that night, I’ve put a few fire ants into my bed at night maybe 3 times per week every week. And each time the mites disappear. I’ve not been able to find anything about this happening anywhere else. So I decided to write about it in your comment section. In the off chance you read this, please do tell any information you could share about mites and ants and weather you know if fire ants kill mites. Thank you sir.

My giant millipede has mites that look quite similar to these. Do you think I have reason to worry? It had them when i got it

The mites mite not be smart, the workers are the ones that travel the most which increases the chance of getting mites, while the queen and the brood kinda just stay in one place. The workers probably came across some mites outside the nest and it lached onto it, so only worker ants are exposed to the mites.

This is ants channel but imma ask anyway since i saw that you have a green bottle blue tarantula. Do you know how to get rid of mites in tarantula. Im not sure what kind it is. It hangs on the carapace, eyes, booklungs of my tarantula. Not much but im concerned. im not talking about springtails here. Using vaseline only take care of some. some will be just out of reach. I read in a forum that leaving the tarantula in calcium carbonate substrate for a month or two will prevent the mites from hatching and that will take care of the problem but I am not sure how the T reacts to calcium carbonate. Introducing Stratiolaelaps scimitus formerly known as the Hypoaspis Miles Mites will be a solution, they will prey on spring tails but I doubt they will take the mites infestation completely. I left it with dry substrate as for now.

Darn those blasted mites!!! A reoccurring plague that just gets passed around the ant room! The poor things. * If they appear in the colder/dryer/windier months. Maybe you can keep them from latching next year by increasing how much you water the enclosures and kicking the heat up a degree or two?
