Are you sure they are ticks? If you smosh them in between your fingers and they smeir brown or red they are more than likley mites. If you got the aspen from fleet farm they are mite for sure. The only thing you can do is to go to a pet store and get some mite spray. Good luck, mite suck a lot and are kinda hard to get rid of. Crying or Very sad

yup, get a mite spray, it should kill ticks too. I had a problem with the bedding from fleet farm, it was a pain to get rid of them all. now I spray the enclosure everyother month as a precaution to avoid the situation from coming back. provent a mite and black knight work very well and you only need a very small amount. once the spray dries it will work for up to 60 days and won't wear off if it gets wet. good luck.
