Ok, so I am almost 99% that I have food mites. I have lots of mites and they are mostly in the habitat not actually on the crabs but they do crawl on them. I am wondering if anyone else has issues with mites? I heard that it is almost impossible to not have food mites because the crabs drag food and it just is a bit messy especially when your crabs roll in the peanut butter, honey, etc. And yes I said roll my crabs rub their shells in the food or roll the food up using their shell? It is so weird. Anyway, is it true that food mites are extremely common and are harmless?
