checked my millies last night and one of them had a white substance on its head. Ive heard before that this is some type of fungus or mold. What is this and is it going to hurt it??

I'm not the best with millies, but I think it would help if you were able to get a picture.

Well, I cant get a picture but it looks like a white chalk like substance...some other people that have millies has had this happen before. I sprayed them and I rubbed my finger over his face and it came off.

Their feces is brown and gooey, and I have no idea why it would be on their face.

There was a thread on this a while back, and we ascertained that it was dried millipede reproductive fluids (try searching for "millipede spooge" -- I'm pretty sure it's the only thread that will come up).
