    Our redfoot's bioactive enclosure is suddenly having infestation issues iwth gnats and small flies. We have traps set up around the outside of the enclosure (zevo plug-in trap & sticky pads) but they have now gotten into the heating system and we are finding them throughout the house. The...

    Isopods!

    We've always had a great population of clean-up crew candidates right in the garden, but this year?? NONE. We found some babies but they did not survive once we brought them in. I've asked local friends to check their yards for me but I think they're assuming I've lost my mind. Sooooo - I'm...

    We can't remove the fencing, because he was stolen in the past. It took us 10 days of sheer hell to get him back, so after that we put the fence up with a padlocked gate. He's been relentless, every day trying to climb the fence and we're finding him flipped over. We have to go out and check...

    We are getting close to being at a loss with our 8 year old redfoot, Puck. Last season he managed to escape his enclosure outside (we still don't know how he climbed a wall of cinderblocks) so this year we expanded it and also added a cyclone-style fence around the cinderblocks that were...
