View Full Version : Infestation!

I just lifted up the moss when cleaning out my newt cage, and found tons of ants and eggs. I cleaned the cage out, getting most of the ants, but some clung to the moss and I couldnt get them out, hoping that the newts would finish em off. I know the ants were a great food source, but not good in the house... and they bit me a few times while I was cleaning. Anyone think they'll come back? (I was wondering how the newts were staying so fat while refusing to eat. Turns out they had a buffet under the moss) Also, is it ok that I soaked the moss in Spring Water to get rid of the tap-water in it?
