Wood Stove Pellets?

Hey. First time posting here, been really busy lately. I was wondering if wood stove pellets were ok for mice. I use them for my ferrets and it works great at keeping down the odor. Also Carefresh is ok for them right? It isn't dusty and they seem to love it. I read on outher sites it was fine but just wanted to make sure.

I use Yesterdays News and it works very well, i think you can use wood pellets like mulder said as long as there is no Pine or Cedar or anything else on it. I know some wood pellets have soaked in liquid to help then burn better so watch for that as well. I've hurd good and bad reviews of carefresh. It's too dusty for me makes me sneeze like mad! if you look under pet product reviews theres one on carefresh you can check out .

Hmmm...I never heard of wood stove pellets,however if it contains phenols like pine and cedar,then it is a no-no!

I use aspen mixed with Yesterdays News! It works well.
