Eggcase (1/7)



  1. Are untreated hardwood boards safe to use in roach bins? Is antisapstain treated lumber safe to use in invertebrate enclosures or is it not a concern? Looking for an inexpensive alternative to cork bark and egg flats (both are impossible to find here) for a potential Archimandrita tesselata bin. Thanks everyone.
  2. Thank you, @Hisserdude. I was able to sift the dry coir well. My nymphs seem healthy. I'm keeping part of the enclosure moist and part bone dry and they seem favor the moist side.
  3. I've read at least one blog post (Invert Dude) and maybe one or two other places where it is recommended to remove chunky blocks and long fibers from any coco-fiber bedding to be used for Polyphaga saussurei nymphs as it can greatly reduce survivability. (1) How can that be accomplished? (2)What's an acceptable consistency for the coco coir for P. saussurei nymphs? Looking for something I can buy local or construct from upcycled material for the new nymphs I ordered. Thanks.
