Springtails Clean Up Crew
Springtails are a wonderful way to control mould in your setup. They work in tandem with earthworms and isopods helping to maintain the mini-ecosystem that is your bioactive setup. A springtail's main food source is mould arising from decomposing matter. Just like all life, mould’s goal is to reach the fruiting stage and spread its spores. Springtails being present will actively keep mould from maturing as well as breaking down waste and is an excellent way to stop manual intervention in a terrarium.
We recommend adding these live, invertebrate decomposers (clean-up crew/custodians) at least 7-14 days prior to introducing your reptile or amphibian to the enclosure.
