Mold or Bugs?

The other morning I went to mist Pepperoni’s enclosure and noticed this white fuzzy-webby like stuff in a few places. It is not visible when dry, looks cleared up until misted. Is this some sort of spider issue? Mold? We just added some new substrate… we rinsed it, but now I’m kicking myself for not baking it.

Any advise on treatment / if it’s immediately harmful to the tort would be helpful.

Thanks in advance — hope you’re all well.

I don't know about the white web but am very curios. I didn't know you had to bake the substrate before you use it. Is this something that should always be done?

Some people bake their substrate to kill any little gnats or their eggs so they dont accidentally introduce a bunch of bugs. Of course, this also kills the good bugs too.

Id guess that most people do not bake their substrate.
