    Question PLease help !

    Hello! I have 2 guinea pigs and i use pine bedding in their cage. My problem is that the pine is causing so much dust to form on my dads electronics which are next to the cage. I would love to move them to anther room and expand the cage but we don't have the room! is there a way i can reduce dust and wood chips from ending up all over the house? I also thought about fleece but it would smell more and need to be washed more often... I'm really stuck and confused. Please reply as soon as you can. I need help Thankyou !

    You could try carefresh. It's more expensive but there is a lot less dust or pine pellets instead of chipping.

    You could also try aspen, thats what I use and it has minimum dust. You may want to just try different brands of bedding, they all differ so you may have more luck with one than another.

    There's also unscented Ecobedding or unscented Yesterday's News for cats which is cheaper than the one for small pets.

    You could also try wood pellets. There's a very small amount of dust when you put them in the cage, and when you clean the cage out, but none at all in between times. You could cover the electronics while you're cleaning the cage. They're by far the best bedding I've tried for controlling the odor.
