    Termites Eating Night Box

    Yea that’s certainly a concern. But this is how we live here in New Orleans and the termites are everywhere. Just have to make sure the house has a barrier around it and keep your termite company paid to take care of the house. Burning the night box will do nothing for the termites here in our...

    Termites Eating Night Box

    Thanks for all your replies. Hopefully I can stop these terrible Formosas we have here in Louisiana before they eat this box up. Doesn’t take long.

    Termites Eating Night Box

    Thanks so much. I will definitely spray that to get a start on getting them out of there while I work on getting a barrier underneath.

    Termites Eating Night Box

    Thanks for your replies. I will try get some type of barrier under it. I didn’t think the termites would be a problem for the tortoise. But they sure can eat it up quick. I know it want last forever but I would like it to last as long as possible before needing to be replaced.

    Termites Eating Night Box

    Thanks. So you put the barrier on top of the treated 4x4. Then set the box back down on the barrier which is laying on the 4x4. I will try that. The crazy thing is. I used treated 2x4 s to raise it 4 inches off the ground so it is sitting on the treated wood not the untreated box. They must have...

    Termites Eating Night Box

    Thanks for your response. I understand get it off the ground. But if i put a barrier on the ground and have the box sitting on top the barrier, Can't they still make tunnels on top of the barrier and work their way to the box. I have a pergula on concrete slab that is built out of wood and i...

    Termites Eating Night Box

    I built a night box in Jan of 2018 like @Tom designed. I used kilz primer and stain with a sealer on the outside. I went to put my tortoise in it for the first time this year since it was going to be a very cold night. When i opened the box for inspection i noticed termites were eating it up and...

    My latest and most advance version of the Enclosed Chamber

    Great job Mark. This is something a lot of tortoise keepers have been wanting. So nice to be able to purchase and not have to worry if you put the right things in and where to locate them. I think the price is excellent. I would sure be interested in purchasing one from you.

    You're doing a fantastic job. Mine are about the same age and are just at the 200 gram range.

    3 little platynota

    I wonder why out of your 3 that are being raised exactly the same way in an enclosed chamber with the right temps and humidity, same diet. This one appears to have a little pyramiding compared to your other 2. I am concerned i am possibly having the same exact thing happen. Can anyone give any...

    Dan, Where did the female lay her first egg? Was it in the enclosed chamber or did they have her outdoors?

    New baby Sulcata!!

    This is the one i use. The outdoor left side is my enclosure and the right side is the indoor of my house. It is wireless and really works well. There are a lot to choose from out there. Got mine on Amazon. There has to be something wrong with yours. There is a way to test your Hygrometer to see...

    New baby Sulcata!!

    You deffinetly have high humidity in the enclosure based on everything having drops of water. I would consider getting a new hygrometer if it still reads 46%. Cant be right.

    Post Your Burmese Star Photos

    I got it mid February of this year. For the first 4 months I kept it indoors in closed chamber. I'm here in Louisiana and the humidity is usually very high. I moved it outside now for the last month with the temps all being above 80 day and night and the humidity above 80%. We have been having...
