<3 New Studio Enamel Pins Stickery Goodness, DIY Mishaps & Adorbs guineapigs <3

Hey everyone!  How have you all been? Hope you’re all having a fab week so far. So I finally got around to vlogging again. It’s been tuns of fun at the guineapig wheekly studio lately and I have lots to show you.

We’ve been chilling with the piggies, designing new guineapig goodies and expanding to create a exciting little shop space so I’m super excited about it all and how the guineapig wheekly is growing. I have lots of ideas for some new blog posts as I’ve missed this blog so much!

Anyway I hope you enjoy this little vlog and I’ll see you next week for another blog post!

🐜🐹Buzz of you! – How to keep flies away from your piggies on warm days!🐹🐜

flies

Now that the summer weather has arrived in the uk ( no doubt we’ll probably have 1 week of summer then its back to rain haha) I have noticed more flies are buzzing around not just the house but the guinea pigs to!

Flies when it comes to our pets can cause problems as they’re often attracted to the messy muck and smells our piggies make when they poop and wee. So its super important to keep flies away from you piggies on warm days to prevent them from laying eggs and breeding more bugs.

Here are my tips on how to cut down on the flies and keep those piggies happy!

  1. Install a fly net : We recently bought two fly nets off ebay and secured it to the door of our Guineapig Wheekly HQ (shed). We also did this to the window area so that even if we leave the windows and door open to ventilate the pigs space this will minimize the number of flies to potentially get in.
  2.  Fly lights : There are special lights you can often pick up from your local super market which attract the flies to its light source. This has proved really helpful for us in again cutting down on the number of flies in the shed space and we often leave this on throughout the day to help prevent them.
  3. Cleaning up more often : Obviously as I mentioned before flies are drawn to the smell of piggie poops and urine and even though its pretty gross they can lay eggs and begin to breed. This is why its super important to spot clean and replace any dirty area’s in your piggies cage more often. It might use a bit more litter than you normally would but its worth it to prevent flies settling in.

I hope you found these guinea pig tips helpful! If you have any suggestions on how we can beat these bugs together then comment below I’d love to try your suggestions to! In the meanwhile enjoy the summer sunshine and pop those piggies on the grass! 😀
