doesnt sound good!
Wait for a T expert or someone who has come across this before, before you totally freak out.
But if it was a scorpion I would be saying "not good, still mites that dont move are bad!"

But wait and see...Tarantulas...MIGHT be different *fingers crossed*

xxxxxxxx

I never had this problem with mights being on the taratula. So i would not be the one to ask this.

the only mite problem i only encounter is in the substrate, all i have done with that is to just change out the substrate.

Immobile is bad -- but are you sure they're mites? I've heard that even the good mites can get into a T's booklungs . . . No

ive been looking online. Is your substrate too moist? That will help mites to breed *this does seem to be talking about walking about ones*

this has a mention on mites, ON a tarantula and being removed physically.
Take a look.

When on page, go a control F *find* for the word tarantula and see if this info helps...

Pull the T out, put it in a plastic container with no substrat in a dark place, the mites might be good mites from the soil that cleans dead feeders and stuff..
