Bearded Dragons make great pets, but they need a particular humidity to thrive. Bearded Dragons need a humidity of 30% to 40% to flourish. This number comes from the average humidity of where they hail from, Australia.
Luckily, in an enclosed environment such as a tank high humidity is a simple fix. You fix it with a tiny non-powered dehumidifier.
Our air quality experts have tested all the following products and can recommend them.
We’ll also recommend a good hygrometer. A hygrometer measures the humidity in an environment. This will help you ensure your bearded dragon is thriving in your care. They’re very affordable and so we recommend them.
Let’s get right into the reviews and rankings!
Best Overall Dehumidifier for Bearded Dragons
Eva Dry Wireless Mini Dehumidifier
The Eva-Dry line of mini dehumidifiers is one of the JustHomeTech team’s favorites. It’s incredible at removing humidity in small enclosed spaces, and it’s very affordable. It’s like those “Do Not Eat” silicon packs you see with medications or other products you by, but it’s re-usable. It’s also sealed tight so your reptile can’t eat any of them.
It’s very simple to use. All you need to do is place it in your bearded dragon’s tank. Check on the color of the gel beads every few days, and if the beads turn blue, plug it into the wall for a few hours. The Eva Dry will heat itself and cause the gel beads to become dry again and ready to absorb more moisture.
Best Hygrometer for Bearded Dragons
ThermoPro TP50 Digital Hygrometer
The ThermoPro TP50 is a super simple Hygrometer that does everything you’d expect. It’s also very affordable. It will tell you the humidity percentage of the location it is in, and the temperature. It also can show you the highs and lows of those measurements it has in its recent memory.
Remember, your reptilian friend likes it in the 30-40% range, so keep an eye on this meter to see if it’s looking comfy.
Hopefully all this helps your bearded dragon feel more comfortable! Just a note as well, if you live in a very humid climate, you might also want a dehumidifier for your dragon’s room too. Depending on your budget, we recommend the LG Puricare or one from our Florida dehumidifier review series.
