I first noticed mites in a paper bag of lavender heads I'd collected from the garden years ago & I think I ended up throwing it away.
Yesterday I looked in my tin of veg seeds & saw something that is probably similar. They are really, really tiny, possibly almost beetle shaped & very fast running.
Does anyone know what they are & how to clean seed I collect from the garden to get rid of them. Also if anyone has any ideas how to get rid of the ones in the tin of bought veg seeds, peas etc. They are in old biscuit tins in the unheated, dry garage.
I wanted to give a friend lots of seed packets that I may not use, but don't want to infest her collection too.....
