CIRCULATION, CIRCULATION, CIRCULATION.

What state are you in ??? Usually this time of year everyone that has to heat their house has the reverse problems with LACK of humidity.

Reduce the uncovered water sources where you can, and get some air in that room !!!!!!

Im my herp room ( houses about 2/3rds or my animals) there is a 4' diameter pond, and a 6' diameter pond that have water in them. The only thing i get on my walls is the blood from a mouse that my croc insists on tearing in smaller pieces..... mold never a problem, or even a concern. Do what you can to get rid of the mold since it can be a health concern for you and your family (mold spores can wreak havok on the sinus, and lungs.

:I have it in the closet of the humid room. I've just tried to air it out. But that room needs to stay humid so I cant air it out too much. The frillies probably dont need it that humid so you could try a dehumidifier.

::okay people i need some help. my herps are all in one room and that is the way i have to keep it. there is a build up of what i think is mold on the walls and where the dry wall nails are. it comes off when you rub it so i washed it with some bleach and water. was just wondering if anyone has this problem in there reptile rooms. what can i do to stop it cause its going to ruin my walls? would a dehumidifier help any? any advice would be greatly appriciated. thanks
