STUMPED- If these aren't mite eggs... what are they???

I posted this on the Iguana Owners page on facebook and no one can figure out what they are. My iguana has mites, he is in a temporary cage. So after cleaning his cage (it is a wooden enclosure) I came across what I thought were mite eggs or larva. So I posted on the Iguana Owners facebook page and asked if it was mite larva or eggs. No one can seem to figure it out. People are guessing they're fruit fly eggs, cockroaches, everything under the sun but no one knows. The other weird part is that they are not alive- they're powdery when you squish them. Also, if they are not mites then how did I not see these bug ever? It looks like I had an infestation in the wood crevices that I cant reach but they're dead. At one point about a year ago I did have fruit flies but I wouldn't think enough to have this much eggs/larva. I am so confused! The enclosure is being quarantined and fumigated and my iguana is in a temp cage right now for a while. I will add pics to this/below this. [img][/img][img][/img]
