 African Millipede Mite/Tick Removal

Hey I just purchase a African Millipede and when it arrived it has a couple what I believe to look like small ticks, propably mites though. What is the best solution/method to get rid of these little buggers(pun intended). I couldn’t think of some thing that would get them without having negative effects on the Mili.
Can you please post your methods
P.s. I have betadine if that is a valid solution

Thanks

if they are brownish in color and relatively fast moving they are either commensal or beneficial to the millipedes and removing them is contraindicated
