Ask Milo – Dead crab smell

Vette asks

We think our son got the hermit crab out of his cage! And we can’t find it. We are leaving going on vacation next week. If we can’t find it we know it will dead. So how do we get the smell out of our house?

Well Vette while I can’t offer any suggestions on getting the smell of a dead hermit crab out of your house I can help you find the missing hermit crab before it dies. This is actually a common occurrence and we have an article about it. Check it out:

Also register for an account and join our forum for some additional advice if the steps in that article fail.

Good luck!

Your friend in a pinch,
Milo
