anyone using HEPA air filters in their tarantula room? I have been using one for some time now, I have it on or next to a desk where I do all the feeding, cleaning, etc. of each enclosure. if any of the t's decides to kick hairs the hairs get sucked into the filter unit instead of going airborne or floating onto me. another plus is that they rapidly "clean" the air of any stanky odors from deceased mice pinks or rat pups (you still need to remove the source of the odor, once the source is removed the odor IME is removed within 45 to 60 minutes). I have noticed that the filter makes a lot of vibration which does not let the t feel the food item in their enclosure as quickly.
