She needs to be treated for mites, just because the bulb is on the quills and you don't see them on a black cloth doesn't mean she doesn't have them. Even a negative skin scraping doesn't mean they don't have mites. When you have quill loss the best thing is to start by treating for mites and then if it continues after then other possibilities can be investigated. Revolution is safe and won't hurt her even if she doesn't have mites.
