The mites are black and almost too small to see, like a grain of salt.
I have not looked closely at the cat, because i am only now coming to conclusion that she may be bringing them in (and i am at work).
She has been very actively catching mice and now appears to be eating them (from what i have seen) and also caught a bird once.
The black mites are biting me; tiny, tiny speck - tremendously painful bite.
I give her Frontline Top Spot for fleas and she does not appear to be scratching.
Are lice the same as mites? Lastly, do "ear mites" bite humans?
