Sealed Pine Enclosures??

Postby tailspinka95 » Tue Jul 07, 2020 8:42 am

Can I build an enclosure out of pine if I seal it well? Turning it bioactive, will the seal hold up as well.

Moved by moderator from Website Comments to Enclosures.

Pine is probably OK as long as it is dried out and you seal it well. I think the concern with pine and spruce has a lot to do with their sap and perhaps aromatics. If you have another option available it may be better. There is a bit of information about it here http://www.anapsid.org/cedar2.html
