The European Drosophila Stock Centre in Umea, Sweden, have a mite 
infestation (Histiostoma laboratorium). We are doing all we can to get 
rid of the plague and we want to warn all of you who have recieved fly 
stocks from us during the last two months, to look carefully at your 
stocks and to keep them in quarantine. Rapid transfers and paper discs 
soaked in tetradifon might help you to get rid of the mites. Read more 
about it in Drosophila, a laboratory handbook (p.1202ff) by M. Ashburner.
