Hi there. Ur post is old now too. Lol.
But I'm going to respond anyway.
Those little cotton balls found in ur medicine bottles aren't really cotton anymore. They r a synthetic.
I have seen with my own eyes these little FUKKERS. Getting into sealed bottles and other containers. I have also seen them get into sealed bags and out of them. They either eat thru the pastic of have something on them that melts it just enuff to get thru plastic containers or sealed baggies. I say the burning thru it cuz, many times I have touched them when I find them on the seams of my clothing. It almost feels like a burn to my skin when it touches me!
But maybe they r just small enough and can flatter enough to get thru the seals.
So either the pharmacist that filled ur prescription has this infestation or they can get in and out of almost anything.
This is a silly question. But I've thought about it.
If these mites were to be taken to another planet or atmosphere could they survive?
I think yes.
Now that is SCARY 😳
