My gerbils have a nasty infestation of mites. They are being treated and doing alright however I’m going crazy as I am finding these bugs all over the place including on my boyfriend and I. I have serious allergies and I’m beginning to get little bites all over my body particularly in the crease of my arms and knees. I don’t know what to do, I can’t have these things taking over my house and my health is at risk. I’ve never gotten rid of a pet before, even after developing these health problems, because I don’t believe in abandoning my animals but if this keeps up I’m going to have to get rid of my girls. So please how do I get rid of these bugs, how do I get them out my carpets, off my body and I’m freaking at the prospect of them being in my bed since they have been on my body. Please I’m losing it!
