    Okay. I have lots of those little bug things in my enclosure. I have been ignoring them - although I did get the sticky tape to help.

    But I came home today and checked on baby and saw this in her water bowl. Which I cannot imagine would be good if she ingests them from drinking. So I am going to bake the substrate to kill them. But how long must you bake it for to make sure they are dead?

    Thanks
