I've been seeing a lot of people lately with concerns about fleas and mites, but I've been having trouble finding any information about them having them or treatments for them.

I have never heard of gliders getting fleas or mites. I don't think it's something we have to worry about treating or preventing.

Gliders can and have gotten mites. It is not terribly common but it does happen. I have not seen any gliders with fleas either.
