Default shredded paper! bedding?

Can anyone tell me if I use shredded paper, such as junk mail and computer paper, for bedding if there is any chance of having mites in the paper?

Default Re: shredded paper! bedding?

Shredded paper is not safe. Shredded paper is dusty and the inks used are usually toxic so they breath in potentially toxic dust. Also, paper is cold when damp.
