Hi there, new user here. I've only ever adopted an African Millipede, and I would like to adopt some type of Feather Millipede. I keep coming across conflicting information about how to care for them so I was hoping that some of you would help me out here. Here are a few of my questions:
-They eat rotting wood, correct? Everyone says to sterilize the wood to avoid mites/centipedes, but won't boiling the wood or freezing it kill off the nutrients or the fungus that they eat?
-Is it true you can use dog food as a bit of a supplement for their diet? If so, what kind of dog food?
-What's their lifespan?
-Since they're naturally found in Northern California, Tennessee and Arkansas, I'm assuming they'll be okay without a heater?
-Where do you usually get your wood for them? I'm hesitant to get things from outside since the neighborhoods I'm surrounded by use such heavy chemicals in their lawns.
