Do they just die and fall off or do I need to get a specific type of comb when she finally lets me bear her. Or can I get special bathing wipes?

    If she won't let you go near her, and it's going to cause stress, then I would leave things as they are. The mites will die and eventually disappear (she will groom old fur and dead skin away)

    She sounds to be doing better?

    Ahh thank you, and yeah for all I had said she herself hadn’t changed. I then noticed that she was scratching a bit more.

    But now she’s scratching less and has been more active than usual

    This. She'll do the grooming so often they don't need our help.

    Glad she seems to be improving. Keep up with the treatments but she should be clear in another 4 to 6 weeks.

    Thank you! Yeah I bought a box of six so I have plenty to do her until she’s clear.

    That's great that the treatment seems to be working.

    We had to treat our boy Thor, as he arrived with them. It was really effective and he's all clear now. We didn't do anything special re brushing or anything, it just all disappeared and his coat is looking lovely now x

    Nope, fortunately. They all had a thorough vet health check and were fine. In all honesty I don't know too much about mites, the buns were living in that 3 tier hutch, so no contact, but can they potentially get passed on from the owner going between them? (goes off to Google.... ) x

    I reckon they could've hopped from hutch to hutch, with that arrangement

    But to answer your question, they can temporarily 'infest' humans while they are holding the rabbit!
