I never clean mine out. I remove all bolus, cricket bits, spider sheds etc but thats it. There's no need 2 clean it all out. Only when rehousing or if you get mites etc other than that .. some of mine have had the same sub for 18 months and are settled and happy :) I think it's a shame to disturb them.

I have one thats had the same substrate for 3 years and it only got changed coz we moved. Same as Becky here, only change if there is any problems. We have woodlice in most of our enclosures who eat and get rid of any nasties and bolus
