While ear mites are not fatal, it is important to pet health that they are immediately remedied. Ear mites spread very rapidly so if you have one cats or dogs infected, it may lead to the infection of other pets.

More information on Ear Mite eggs:

Yes, ear mites, like other types of mites lay eggs. The life cycle of ear mites is about 3-4 weeks. The first stage of life cycle is the egg. Ear mites lay eggs inside the ear variable in number. After the egg hatches larvae comes out which changes into nymph.The nymph has two stages the protonymph and deutonymph. From the deutonymph adult mites arise. Ear mites breed before they are sexually differentiated, in their nymph stage. After breeding if an ear mite develops into a female it will become gravid and lay fertile eggs. In case a male develops it will start breeding other nymphs and the cycle repeats in this way.

Some ear mites treatment products are only suitable for the adult and nymph stages and do not necessarily destroy the eggs. In such cases usually a second application of treatment is advised after 3 weeks to kill the next adult or nymph generation.
