I have seen three types of mites that could be distinguished with the naked eye, black, brown, and red. I have only seen the red appear on collected North American specimens, and I have seen the brown and black on imports from everywhere. It was always my understanding that mites were able to thrive well inside the ears of rabbits. I used to feed my burms live and I had to seven dust them about 3 times a year. In 2000 I moved to frozen rabbits and have not had mites since. Zoe, do you think that is only coincidence?
