I noticed that Orbit has two sets of scabs. One is on the back of her neck and the other just appeared much further down on her back. The scabs almost look like bite marks since they are sets of 2 small marks.

She has been living alone for a couple of months now, we have a new guy and who is in quarantine and will meet her the week after next, so I can eliminate another rat being the cause. She is ok with being alone, most of the time, so I was wondering if the scans could be from herself but then I found out about the mites issue.

Any help would be appreciated!

Those are likely areas for it to be mites, scratching with the hind legs. Barbering themselves is usually on the front paws.
