Thanks for replying. I read the article, am i right in assuming that they do live in and come directly from the cardboard? or could they be regular bird mites?
Iv removed all the boxes and cardboard and cleaned everything in hot water, aslong as i dont give her more cardboard im assuming they wont come back if they are cardboard mites?
the tree she is perched on was a artificial bamboo tree, which i know longer have. I always make sure i only have budgie safe plants.
