How many of you reuse cork bark? I've done rehousing and the old houses have used cork bark in them. Can they be reused? If so, what do you do to make them ready for the next occupant? Cork bark isn't expensive but I hate to throw away a perfectly good piece of used cork bark. Smile

I reuse it. I soak/submerge in plain water and then bake for 20-25 minutes or untill dry at 275 degrees. All the moisture soaked up will steam out any critters and pretty much steralize for the next use. I haven' had any issues and my T's do not seem to mind.

I must admit I reuse my cork bark aswell,
all I do is bake it, and store it ready for my next T,
no problems so far, and I really do think it is a waste to throw it away,
I am sure in the wild Tarantulas would use and resuse what they find hanging about

I reuse it as well. I wrap it in tin foil, and bake it for 30-45 min at 350ºF

I don't have ANY cork bark. It's rather expensive to order and ship. I think I'll just save some cash and buy some at the next Expo in October
