Hi, I have a male bearded dragon around 8 months old. Around 3 weeks ago I saw little red dots on him and was informed they was mites. Since then his been having warm baths and rubbed down with olive oil. I also bought a mite spray but that didn’t seem to do much. I religiously clean his viv and have been trying my hardest to get rid of them but I’m having no luck. I’m growing more concerned as the days are going. Please if anyone has any advice on how to get rid of these little pests any quicker I would be much grateful. I just want my beardie to be happy and healthy again😔

You're going to have to fully deep clean everything in the enclosure, and the enclosure.

Bake any wood pieces you have in the oven as its easy for them to hide in cracks and crevices. If you have a steam cleaner, that is good to use to clean the enclosure and non-porous items.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
