Those who have run Magmaw know that the parasites are a PITA, and generally the hunter gets to be the guy to hang out and kite them all.
So my though after wiping a few weeks in a row now is to bring in my turtle to tank the parasites, I dont think that the turtle will be affected by them
I read somewhere about some hunter using his pet to tank the adds, but it should really not be necessary. If as hunter you are struggling, some other ranged should help you take them down fast. Using a tank pet may mean safer handling but you'll loose the dps and agi/crit buff from a ferocity pet and you have a different version of the dilemma.
Glyph of Ice Trap also helps the CC a bit.
On last week's Magmaw I was alone on adds and they went down fast enough without issues, so those are the things I do differently from the majority of survival hunters do.

I'm MM on them, along with another MM and we are MD'ing then multi-shot to our pets, who are on the boss after dropping frost traps. God forbid I should be hadning a guild issue or have a distraction at home, it is a lot. LOL

The group Im in we have a BM Hunter, a Mage and myself assigned to dealing with the adds. The BM throws a frost trap just in front of where they spawn and I throw one down about the midway between us and them. Usually the three of us can burn them down before they get half way through my frost trap.
