Beech Leaves play many important roles within a Bioactive enclosure. From covering substrates to reduce moisture loss, and thus keep humidity down, to acting as a food source for custodians and microbes within the soil. Who wants to eat faeces all day?
Beech Leaves break down slowly to compared to other species, and so are the perfect addition to an environment.
Whilst Bioactive Herps always advocate the use of leaf litter from outdoors, where beneficial microbes and custodians are already living. However, it is important to remember that in areas of high pollution, pesticides or where the risk/fear of disease transmission is high, using sterilised leaves like these are much more preferable.
Use as a foraging medium in non-bioactive setups for animals like African Pygmy Hedgehogs. Or use as a more natural looking substrate, that is easy to change.
All of our Leaves are purchased from responsible facilities, free from pesticides and fertilisers. they are heat treated to sterilise the leaves and dry them out, then packaged in the UK, so you know they are safe for use.
Leaves make a great addition to culturing tubs for various clean up crews
