The one I'm asking for ID is the red mite (the darker colored mite). There are young garbage mites for scale. It has infected three of my colonies. Are the mites harmful to my ants? Any ideas on how to get them off the ants? I couldn't find anyone selling predatory mites in where I live. Please help!!
