    annnoying bugs

    This is what i just saw since I don't have Mylar on the sides of my terrarium yet to keep it warmish I used a towel then after oa couple of weeks I noticed some tiny grey bug on the side of the tank now I put foil around my tank for temporarily and don't know what is going to happen. If the stupid bugs come again what should i do also i think it is because of the light.I want to get rid of the bugs without killing them because then I will feel sorry because of Religous Reasons.

    Ugh... that's annoying, and I don't mean the bug problem.

    are they pill bugs? I've had them lurking around before but never saw them do anything to my plants, but then again, I never let them get close. They like wet and humid, low light conditions.

    can you describe the bugs? do they seem to be causing any damage to your plants?

    my guess is they're harmless. and it's easy for us humans to get squeamish about bugs, whether or not they're dangerous. they might even be helping your plants by eating rotting material or fungus or things like that. or, of course, it could end up plant food.

    the truth is, you may not be able to get rid of the insects, especially if you don't want to kill them. And even if you did, more would surely take their place.

    if I were you, I'd just let it be. unless, of course, it were harming my plants.
