  1. i think that brow mites is part of demodex, i mean if you have demodex mites lets say on your face and considering that these buggers can crawl on the skin, then over time it can get to the eyebrows. i red some where that the mites like to lay eggs in hair follicles so this is why it look for hair oh the facial skin (don't know how true it is thoug) but i think it make sence to why mites like the eyebrow hair.
