    The lights are on. The weather is warm. The windows and doors are open. The bugs come in.

    That and the substrate flies that thrive in the damp humidity of the enclosure

    You're in the UK. The bugs won't harm you or your tort - well you're more likely to collect a gnat bite than your tort. Your tort will be fine :)
