I think it would be nice to have some information about the life cycle of ear mites. How long they live for, how long for eggs to hatch etc. I will see if I can find any of this information and post it here. Keetanii (talk) 21:40, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
There are many species of ear mites, and they tend to be host--specific. The human infestations referenced in the article refer to three different species, all of which are different from the species that commonly infect pets. This seems misleading, as the statement that earmites may infect humans may bring readers to believe that they are likely to "catch" ear mites from their cats, for instance, which is not the case. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:00, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
