If they are soil mites, I'd rather leave them alone. They keep the
compost in balance. Without their help, you might find your worms
bailing out of the bin when you add fresh manure. Use a trowel to
flip over the surface compost where these things likes to hang out.
Nab the worms underneath then wash your hands when you're done. I
agree, the little 'pops' from squished mites makes my hair stand, too.
Sorry I couldn't offer a better solution.
