    When I was a kid I picked up a chicken covered with mites. Then so was I. To my great embarrassment and desperation I let my aunt give me a bath in water mixed with vinegar. A good soak in the tub and they were all gone and dead. Old fashioned farm remedy that worked. I was so relieved. Should work for your habitat as well. I would NEVER use chlorine and it is not allowed in my home!
