    Hi guys just looking for different ways to control the humidity in my beetle tanks. I have them in old chest freezers with screened over vent holes. I use a ceramic heater. trying to get some ideas on better humidity control.Thank you Doug

    Doug what sort of problems are you having low humidity or high humidity?

    Depending on your location your issues could be completely different.

    I live in sw Wisconsin. I struggle to keep humidity below 80%. always seems damp in my tank. I was wondering if there is a way to rig up some type of dehumidifier?

    I use a dehumidifier in the room I keep the beetles in during the summer, it will keep the humidity in check inside the beetle box. In the winter I have to spray as needed.

    You may have to dry your heads a bit and/ or add more ventilation.

    In the warm months in Mo., and our high humidity, I have vented in fans into the freezers. Forcing air in, with positive pressure ventilation, constantly turning the air in the freezers. It works!! 4" dryer hose

    I'll try to get a pic this evening.
