little white dots / balls

uvalaxMarch 26, 2010

there are a bunch of little white dots all around the walls of my bin, above the bedding. when i move closer, they're a bunch of tiny balls, kinda like the sugar on Sno-caps. does any one know what they might be? are they harmful or harmless?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sounds like white mites to me. From what I understand, they are pretty harmless and only become a problem if they get to be so many in number that they become competition for food.
