Okay so I spotted a few mites on the glass and in the water dish of my H. Spinifer's tank, they're white, fat, slow and generally don't do anything. They're not on her or in any other enclosure, and only seem to go after decaying matter (I once saw a few of them on a dead mealworm I left on the side and forgot about).

I scoop them out with a spoon when they get trapped in the dish, however I'm convinced the dish is the source.

Worry? Relax? I really don't know.

Releax.. the mites is most likely the cleaner mites alot of ppl get if there are some feeder bug leftovers in the dirt and orther places.. no need to panic.. You can give your scorpion new dirt or let them do they work.. The mites you see on scorpions are smaller and are on the scorpion they wont be crawling around in the dirt or waterbowl..

I put isopods (pill bugs, wood lice, sow bugs, whatever you want to call them) in my tanks to clean up after my Ts and scorps. They will help prevent mold, mites, and other pests.
