mites and tapeworms


I found this article http://www.thehorse.com/articles/22928/strategic-deworming-qa
posted by Prometheus23 that might explain why those of us who thought we had mites maybe did/do, and that finding worms does not necessarily exclude or replace the idea of having mites.

from the article..."Mites play a role in transmitting tapeworms....We do not fully understand the entire life cycle of the Tapeworm both in the horse and on the pasture. The most common Tapeworm in the horse, Anoplocephala perfoliata, requires an intermediate host (the oribatid mite) to complete its development outside of the horse."
