Is a mister the same as a fogger?
A fogger creates a ‘fog’ of water vapor, whereas a mister creates a cloud-based water vapor – mimicking rain. One important caveat to remember is that a fogger should not be used to replace a mister, but instead can be used in conjunction with one.
Does a crested gecko need a Mister?
Crested geckos require higher humidity than other gecko species, and these levels need to be checked daily. Most crested gecko owners use either a spray bottle or an automatic mister to regulate humidity in the enclosure.
Is fogging better than misting?
Fogging pumps produce ultra-small droplets, approximately 1–10 microns. Misting pumps produce slightly larger droplet sizes, approximately 10–100 microns. Because fog has smaller droplets, it basically floats into the air and randomly settles on surfaces without rhyme or reason.
How far apart should misters be?
We usually suggest spacing misting heads every 2 – 4 feet. The idea is to surround the guests with cool refreshing mist.
How long should I mist my crested gecko?
These geckos also require an overall humidity of at least 50%- 70%. Daily misting will be required, twice a day for at least 30 seconds each interval; with Reverse Osmosis water.
Do foggers increase humidity?
Foggers are a great way to add humidity to an enclosure whilst creating a natural fog/mist effect. On the downside, they don’t produce as much condensation within the enclosure so the humidity tends to drop faster than when an enclosure is sprayed.
Why do reptiles need misting?
High humidity is important to the health and shedding of lots of reptiles. Many species live in humid environments near rainforests, ponds and marshes. Misting is one of the best and fastest ways to increase the humidity in a tank.
How does the monsoon solo work?
The Exo Terra Monsoon Solo is a programmable misting system suitable for all types of terrariums. It helps maintain optimal humidity by generating a fine mist at programmed intervals, the duration and frequency of which can be easily adjusted depending on the type of animal or plant housed.
