That bedding would likely be safe, but not exactly ideal. It's just pellets, so your mice can't burrow in it whatsoever. You could probably mix it with another bedding or use it in a portion of the cage but I wouldn't use it by itself.

What issues have you been having with aspen? Smile

thank you and i give my girls a Burrowing Area in the cage using eco earth that they love to play in and as for my problem with aspen it seems i have developed a slight allergy so it makes me sneeze and my hands get kind of itchy and red, (its not mite nor dust as my girls have no problem with it)

Eco Earth also doesn’t hold burrows well—you should be able to stick your finger in it and it should hold its shape. There are some cheaper paper options that could work like Small Pet Select and even Kaytee clean and cozy isn’t too bad (I spend about $15 a week on KCC bedding).
