Follicle mites (eye-brow mites) are Demodex folliculorum which live in the
hair follicles and Demodex brevis which live in the sebaceous (oil) glands.
Demodex canis, the canine follicle mite, causes mange.  There are also a
number of other species of Demodex that infect animals such as cattle,
horses, and pigs.  With this bit of information you should be able to find
the additional information in which you are interested.
