Aspen Leaves?

Recommended Posts

I just learned that aspen is a hardwood, which is good because I've got it growing around me. Are aspen leaves safe to use for roaches? Is there anything I should be wary of? Thanks!

I believe aspen leaves and aspen wood are good for millipedes and beetles that require rotten wood and leaf litter, so it should be fine for your roaches! :)

Aspen is one of the safest, least toxic woods around! That's why people recommend using aspen shavings instead of pine for sensitive animals that need a loose substrate. It can even be used in aquatic setups.

My roaches eat the aspen as much as the oak, and I have some species in finely shaved aspen bedding with no issues.
