Ah ok thats ok then i was thinking i would have to take the cages apart and try and get them all out of the room or something which would not have been easy one pair of rabbits have a 46 panel C&C type cage took forever to get it together the first time dont fancy having to do it any time soon

Sorry to hijack but I notice a lot of earwiggy things in the rabbit stable. I assume they like the pellets/ hay etc but there doesn't seem to be anything that can be done about them. Harmless critters?
