    I’ve experienced issues with mites as well.
    Dry feed left out to long got infected and so did our frass (bsf production). It did not seem to interfere of affect anything negatively in the production, but we changed our handling methods to reduce the occurrence.

    Our guess was that it was Acarus siro, but we never got it confirmed.
