Wood pellets for millipedes?


Recommended Posts

I'm rabbit sitting for my neph-bun and was wondering if his litter pellets which are hardwood wood fuel pellets could be used for a source of wood for my millipede? It says there are no additives and is 80% or more hardwood and 20% or less softwoods. Has anyone done this?

Softwood, as in conifers? If so, I wouldn't use them for the millipedes, as that will kill them most likely. 

Even if it's not made of conifer wood though, you'll have to ferment the wood until it's rotten enough for the millipedes to eat, (they can't consume wood until it's been well rotted), and that takes quite a bit of time and effort to do.
