Yeah, I've tried that already.Cale3459 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:44 pmStrange, I haven't had that issue in mine and I've done several media changes. Maybe you could try wetting all the cotton before putting the nest back on top. That way it's prewetted before putting water in the tray to be absorbed by the cotton. What's the air temperature around your nest? I have a heating cable in mine but I also have a heat lamp with a reptile thermometer right next to the nest to keep the air temperature perfect for my species. They then use the heating cable to get the brood warmer or cooler depending on what they choose moving them closer or farther away. That may also be why I'm having zero condensation issues.
Since it's summer here it averages around 24 degrees Celcius. They really enjoy the heating cable, they have all their pupae stacked up against the wall of the heated end.
