Cleaning of bioactives


New member
I am a long way from having to clean and replace my bioactive (just started 6 months ago), but am just curious about what you all do when the time comes to do that - how do I safely dispose of the substrate with the clean-up crew in it? Is it safe just to dump that outside in my garden, or are the CUC considered invasive? (I'm in Wisconsin)

Others may not agree, but I don't clean. Why would I upset the cycle that has been established by cleaning? I have some cages that have been going for over 10 years.
