Fungus Gnat infestation

Postby Jacobsherps » Fri Jan 10, 2020 10:06 pm

Not realy about beardies but has to do with reptiles and terreriums, Ive got two toads (american and fowlers)that live in a large cage with live plants and all and these little bugs (i later learned are called fungus gnats)are infesting the terrium and have found there way to my little grapefruit seedlings and my Areogarden where i grow beardie food i find them anoying and so do all my pets i read about vinigar and dish soap but i figured it might be unsafe because they are amphibians and everything goes through there skin and all, they are realy nosey and like getting into trouble. How should i stop them

This is the cage is was ment for a leopard gecko but we had other plans.
Dimensions 36 24 18 i think
Substrate is a mix of zilla jungle mix zoo med repti bark and Zoomed eco earth
Plants golden pothos (devils ivy), sweet marjoram (actualy a herb), snake plant or sansivaria and a janet craig compacta dracnea
The wood is just random bark i found in my back yard (where they lived before the fell down the well)

Hi there,

Awesome frogs! I wish I knew more about them but I really don't. Best advice I could give is maybe try to find a frog forum to ask. I do know there skins are extremely sensitive, so i'd be cautious with whatever you do.
