Post subject:  Tiny mites invading the BSF pods

I have noticed tiny mites (or what looks like it) that have invaded the BSF pods. There are so many that they form a white blanket over parts of the feed. I would like to know if anyone has encountered these and if they are a problem for the larvae?

Location - Tanzania.

Sune welcome to our forum :) If you'd like you can introduce yourself here (link).

I haven't had to deal with a mite infestation myself but here are search results for 'mite' on the forums (link). Hope this helps.
