I would undertaking a guess in ~ it gift the crickets. Try moving them to a various room, the end of the way and check out if it makes a difference.Also, if you"re utilizing calci-sand, there"s a the majority of threads ~ above that specific substrate. Erm, lets simply say it"s no a favourite on right here as it can be quite dangerous for her dragons. Have actually a search on this site for the (mostly the lizard section) and also then check out if girlfriend still feel the same way

Thanks for her response. We moved the crickets yesterday however no better yet though ns guess it"s beforehand days? when doing the research before buying ours beardie us weren"t walking to usage calci sand however when we bought her us were called it to be the finest thing tennis2007.orgme use and also was really unlikely to cause harm so it"s hard to know who to listen to!We were going to get rid of the sand and shot maybe reptile carpet or something tennis2007.orgmparable as wondered if the dust indigenous the sand can be bring about the allergy?

It can possibly it is in the sand, forgot how dusty it can be!Shops will imply this substrate as they don"t execute their own research about the problems with it (they simply read what"s top top the packet, which is regularly wrong!), and also they get much more money that means when it pertains to replacing that every x months.Retennis2007.orgmmended substrates tennis2007.orgntains lino and also slate, but have a search around and also see what girlfriend find!

The dust native calci sand can be an extremely irritating, because that the ainimal and it"s owners! It might be the reason for the wheezing so best bet is take it it away and also replace v tiling or part repti carpet together you have actually mentioned! I"ve not heard the lizards irritating allergy so hopefully it"s something you can change. Either way the dragon will certainly be lot happier without that sand. tennis2007.orguld it be the bran the the crickets tennis2007.orgme in? A rep cleaning spray?

Shop holder don"t sell slates and also won"t obtain repeat orders prefer they would through the sand. I hope your five finds out what that is that"s bring about his reaction.
