 How many cages do you have?

Go down 

How many cages do you have?
 one - nice and simple easy cleaning
 two - a bit more work but worth it
 three - the best things come in threes- the three musketeers, the three tenors, lowfat - nonfat - whole
 four - cleaning them all is a bit of a challenge
 five or more - I dread cleaning cages day like the plauge

Just one suggie cage, but it's still the cage I dread cleaning the most. I'd rather do fish tank maintenance!

PostSubject: WEEKLY CLEANING   Sat Sep 19, 2009 2:09 am

This is my first post, I wanted to see how it works.

I clean weekly, I just have one cage, but, I'm pickly and the "guys" (C & H) are messy. I also keep pans of water under the wheels of the cage (ants can't swim!), so, those need to be cleaned too.

I also use a non-chemical insect spray made of dish soap, vinegar and water (that ants and bugs hate), and (its safe for gliders), been using it for years.

I have 3 ays and I clean them about every 6months. Yes I know that sounds gross but I have cages that I made with the Klubertanz wire. I wipe them down every couple of weeks to get the food that they fing but since that wire does not smell I don't have to clean as often. Aboutevery two weeks I clean the pouches,toys and wheels. The more you clean the more they mark and it smells. So I have found One week I will clean the wheels (TGI and Stealth) and the next week I will clean pouches and toys. That way the always have stuff int he cage that smells like them.

That works, if it keeps them fairly neat and keeps the smell down. Mine are not breeders (pets), so they smell better. I also had the male fixed early on, so, he never developed the scent glands. (They are brother and sister, I did not want any 'messin' around to happen Laughing )

PostSubject: Natural Ant Spray   Sat Sep 19, 2009 10:38 pm

Sorry clollestad, I missed your post.

RECIPE FOR NATURAL ANT SPRAY REPELLANT

2/3 CUP WATER
1/3 CUP WHITE VINEGAR
2-3 TBLSPNS DISH SOAP

I've been using it for years, haven't had a problem, it seems safe to use around my 'guys', not on them (not necessary), just around the legs of the cage, in the corners, near an outside door etc.

do you get alot of ants in your cage Sue? I know here we get alot of fruit flies - they are so annoying - to help with that I clean out the dishes in the morning so the fruit and veggies arent sitting out all day - that helps alot!
