Hello I am new to this website so forgive me if I am doing this wrong. I have had my crestie since March with no problems, but I recently bought a piece of grapevine wood from Pangea that must’ve been infested with springtails, I have never seen them until putting the wood in the tank.I am fairly certain they are springtails and not mites, they are light brown and have oval bodies with little antenna things and I have not found any on Phoenix (my gecko). It was only a few at first but it’s been less than one week and I am already seeing more and more of the things. From what I’ve read online I know they aren’t harmful but I noticed some outside of the tank today. I have the tank in my bedroom which is in a basement, and it can get very humid in basements so my worry is that they will be able to survive outside the tank and infest my entire bedroom. To make things worse, my tank is on top of my dresser and I found springtails on my clothes. I took everything out and washed it but I can’t put anything back in there until the springtails are gone. This is the first piece of wood that I have gotten for the tank and I didn’t realize beforehand that I needed to boil it or bake it. I washed it thoroughly with hot water like everything else I put in the tank. I am planning on boiling it tomorrow but the tank is already covered in them so how do I go about getting rid of them? Is there any chance they could survive outside the tank for very long in a humid basement ? I don’t mind them being in the tank but if they can infest my room then I need to get them out ASAP. Any advice or information is greatly appreciated.
