Hi, I have got some `Beaphar Reptile Safe Disinfectant` and I just wondered if this is safe to use for millipedes

Thanks for any replies:2thumb:

Has anyone else used this for inverts, or should I just use water. I have brought a small rub to put my millipedes in while I clean them out, I have to drill holes in the top for air, and I wanted to know if i could clean the rub out with this disinfectant after I have drilled the holes

I really wouldn't bother, inverts don't react well to cleaning products.
Even reptile safe disinfectants have things in them harmful to inverts.
Unless you want to risk your millipedes lives for the sake of some unnecessary cleanliness, don't do it.
Why do you want to disinfect them anyway? They don't need to live in a sterile environment, microbes are very beneficial to their enclosure.

All these disinfectants are a big con IMO. Hot soapy water is pretty much as good as anything for tasks like this. Just make sure the water is nice and hot and it'll kill off just as many nasties as a disinfectant :)
