Colleting leaf litter


Recommended Posts

My yard has been pesticide and fertilizer free since purchasing the house 3 years ago however I do know that my neighbors are avid users of pesticides and weedkiller. Am I taking too big a risk collecting leaf litter from my own yard for use in my inverts' enclosures?

I think you should be fine. Especially if you see lots of life in the leaf litter (if it’s not to cold yet) Ive collected leaf litter in a rich area where I’m sure they all use chemicals. And nothing has happened to any of my inverts. If your really concerned you could wash the leaves and then bake them.
