Hi

I've bought some beech chips (from a herp shop). Whats the best way to clean/sterilise them before putting them in a viv? Gas Mk 7 for 2 hours??

I was thinking about freezing, but wondered if it would kill any bugs??

I've used beech chips for 8 years without treating and never had a problem.

I take no resposibility for any problems that arrise from using Beech chips untreated... 8)
