    I had a similar problem when using coco fibre substrate, horrible stuff! Try out Prorep Spider Life substrate, it's soil based and works wonderfully. Even my tarantulas needing the highest humidity never get mold in their enclosures now, give it a go :)

    9.5 ph water in a spray bottle... and you have to spray it on the regular.... high alkalinity water will kill mold. I don't know what would happen if you sprayed it on the spider or tarantula.

    Petko I am a new tarantula owner and someone directed me to you channel and your videos have helped me and answered a lot of questions i had. I only wish i knew about you before i made me decision on what tarantula to buy. I would of probably went with the chromatopelma cyaneopubescens in stead of a avicularia avicularia. Also id love a more detailed video of the build of inside an enclosure for both types of tarantulas, just so i can see what an experienced tarantula owner does and knows to help with common issues. I love your videos and cant wait to see what else you put out for videos.

    By the way you might also want to look for a different substrate like iron rich dirt instead of soil or even using a mix of 75% dirt 25% soil so you retain mositure.

  • carlos hernandez
    carlos hernandezRok temu

    You should really consider framed mesh lids like you’d use for for a snake. The mold is going to start making all your spiders sick and it’s going to start causing all of them to have molting issues and eventually die or be infertile.

    ALSO..... if youre worried about maintaining moisture levels, use a light mister spray bottle or even set up an automatic misting machine making sure the mist can reach each of the enclosures. You can probably find one at your local hydroponic store for vegetables or gardening for under $30.... or even make one yourself.

    Get rid of the mold and you will surely prevent any type of bug infestation. :) AND maintain proper house keeping.

    Some mites and aphids eggs and pupa are so small that they float in the wind and are eapecially abundant in rural or foresty areas :) if you let your mold problem get any worse you will encourage them to begin to feed off the mold and spores.....
