Ventilation Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I have 5 small colonies right now, all with a heat gradient of 70F to 82F. Their tubs fog up pretty bad, and I only have ventilation on the top of the lid.

I heard that cross ventilation is really important for roaches, is this true? Do I need to redo the ventilation on all my tubs?

It depends which species you have. My hissers have had ventilation on only the lid for many months and do fine.

Totally depends on the species, but seeing as your enclosures are fogging up quite a bit, I'd probably add at least a small amount of cross ventilation to the tubs...
