How do you know if your dog has ear mites?

if your dog has ear mites? I've heard about them once and a while, but was never told more about them. Can you know if your dog has them without asking the vet? Anyone know any symptoms? Just curious

Shaking their head and scratching are symptoms, also if you look in the ears or clean them with cotton you will notice very dark/blackish dirty looking gunk in there. I believe you need some drops from the vet to get rid of them. Not sure on that since it's been years since I've dealt with them, there may be an OTC for them now.
I think it was said best above.
