They are most likely fruit flies, not gnats. Well, the most common reason for fruit fly invasion is because leftover vegetables or fruit are being left untouched. Those flies like to crawl all over the fruit.

To get rid of them, clean the whole cage thoroughly and replace all food and bedding. If you don't you might find some maggots in your cage!

Hamster cages are mostly bin cages, tank cages, and bar cages. They eat leafy veggies, fruits (not citrus) , sunflower seeds, corn, etc.

You can find quality inexpensive cages for your hamster at PetProductsByRoyal.com

humsters like to run around not sit in cages and it also depends what are your hamster.

No, defiantly not. It could potentially be very harmful to the hamster.

First you should look in the room where the hamster cage is to look for any holes or cracks that may lead to the outside, so fis that if that is the case. Now, as for the gnats, put a gnat resistance chemical in the room, but away from the hamster cage, it will lure the gnats over to it and trap them, so they eventually die. You could also get a Venus Fly Trap.

Hamster cages with wood chips.

At a pet or pet supplies store.

Pet shops, eBay or maybe a neighbour or friend who used to own a hamster.

oh no, no they can't they are one of the biggest of the hamster breeds.

no. hermet crabs neeed water to live therefore it will not survive in a hamster cage.

yes when i did i had 57 babies so i got free cages from the hamster club

a tiny bit if its in your room you cant smell it

no, they should be in seperate cages.

At every store that has pet cages.

if it doesnt have thin tunnels then yes... i think lol NO NO NO!!!!!! hamster cages are TOTALLY unsuitable for mice as they have calapsible rib cages. A suitable cage is a fully plastic cage with NO bars. Or a fish tank with a decent lid- hope this helps

I would buy the wired cages . The plastic ones look cooler but they ar less spacey . I have a hamster and it lives in a wired cages and it's happy and healthy .

There are a number of places where you can get the blue prints for a hamster cage. You can ask a company that makes these cages for example.

It depends. Large cages once every week, unless there are more than one hamster, then every other day. Small cages every other day, and there should only be one hamster in a small cage. If the hamster is in mating season you might want to clean them out more often, as the smell is worse and they urinate more. Also, bigger hamster will urinate more, keep that in mind. :)

it depends on the size of the cage you need and the space you need

I my opinion,Critter Trail.

the one i go to is good the hamsters are healthy

well maybe yes if the old hamster owners don't clean the cage for the other hamster to live in!

Probably the best place to a hamster cage is pets at home. I bort a cage that was £19 and I got £4 change.

You can buy a nice hamster cage online at PetProductsByRoyal.com. They offer FREE SHIPPING on most items.

I think the best hamster cages come from Critter Trail. They have tubes a wheel and some thing to hide under.
