I have guinea in my room and the last week I keep finding little bugs crawling! and the only way to describe them (don't laugh) is like baby rhinos/beatle like things!

I think they are coming from the hay! as its a fairly new bag ive got, but their creaping me out! anyone else had mini rhinos! ahah :/

i once had a bag of hay that had things crawling, that could possibly have been described as baby rhinos...so I'm a spaz too!

My advice, get rid of bag and contents and get another x

When I lived at my moms, I had an invasion of tiny tiny tiny white bugs that you could barely see. I think they came from sexys bedding. It sent me round the bend. They were EVERYWHERE! The final strawl for me was seeing them in my underwear draw and in my bed. We had to redecorate my whole room and wash everything with disinfectant.Then they went. I had to throw away so much stuff that i loved as well. Its such a shame that hay is something they HAVE to have but it has mites and bugs in. My piggies all got lice and mites this year from hay grrrr.

Lol that thread made me laugh :) baby rhinos, wow!

heheeehee....ahhh

Well, weevils, ooh i dont really like those, although i think they are harmless. We have some tiny, tiny little black beetles in the spare room where the piggies are living and i noticed one in the run tonight, when i was cleaning out..
maybe its a weevil? not sure..
