    Exclamation Help! Hypochondriac needs reassurance about red mites!

    Hi again

    So I saw what I thought was a red mite near my budgies cage last night just as I was putting to sleep. I'm afraid Incase they have red mites as I'm unsure where they would have come from. I was basically up all night reader Hong how to get rid of the red mite but to be honest I'm unsure if it is red mites (needing reassuring!) so the round red thing was outside my budgies cage and to be honest it looked to be a mite of a budgie. Something that looks similar to it was either a big spider mite? But it didn't move as fast as one! Or I found something called a clover mite? I did squish it and it was red !! But it had 8 legs and a round body. When I looking about red mites in Budgies they seem to be very small? And they don't go the solid bright red colour when there engorged they look sorta like raisins? A dark red? My birds generally aren't too restless at night... They were probably restless last night as I put a ivermectin drop on them (because I was afraid) I checked the birds with a torch throughout the night but couldn't find another red thing. I couldn't see anything moving in the budgies cage either... So do you think it was a one of? My birds are currently going through there second moult so could the be a cause? Any help would be appreciated! I'm currently terrified Incase there's a horde of these somewhere.. Please help!
