I've used cypress mulch for ages, and have never seen any bugs, at least not yet that is!
Maybe it's some sort of a batch thing? I don't know how they process the stuff, but maybe that is of some sort of influence. The last time I had seen wood mites were in coconut husk substrate last year, and the time before that was 2 years prior in shagnum moss. Funny enough though it seems more common in the barks you get at pet stores than in garden center purchases.
