How do I make sure my hermit crabs are mite free?

Question by nosuchthing021: How do I make sure my hermit crabs are mite free?
My hermit crabs recently had mites on them- I cleaned the entire tank, boiled the crabitat components in hot water and replaced the substrate as well. I bathed each crab and isolated them from the tank. I want to be sure they are mite free – how can I be sure?

    You can go to the pet store and buy these special bugs that eat Hermie mites. They do not hurt the crabs.
