hi everyone!

My first of many questions! please could anyone tell me if my tort enclosure encourages spiders? I have a phobia of spiders, and have found several in my room this year. I keep my youngster on top soil, and my mum thinks this might attract them? Problem is I never find them anywhere near her, they are always the other end of the room. I have not opened my window in months, due to this issue! My dad advised one of those pest clear plug ins, that make some sort of noise to deter them? But I was worried it might bother bramble? Please can someone help I am suffering a lot! Many thanks :-)

You could consider getting treatment for your phobia, as it's making your life difficult.

Depending on which species you have, your tortoise could be outside in the coming warm spell.
