    I suspect the source is contamination in one of your food sources.
    What are you feeding?

    Re: Flour Mites???

    When I first started raising meal wornm I had issues with other insects contaminating the bins. I started microwaving the bran I was feeding for 3 minutes and it stopped.
    You might try thoroughly cleaning your containers, then zapping your dog and cat food with the microwave and see if that stops it.
