I have some rye berries that are infested with tiny black lice. they've hollowed out some of the grains by eating through them. I've tried getting rid of them by sifting and have gotten the majority out. But when I put them in jars with water I see the bugs floating in it. Would it be a bad idea to just autoclave with the bugs in the jars and use them afterwards? Otherwise is there any suggestions how I might get rid of the bugs from the grain?
Honestly, I'd just PC them and go for it. The exoskeletons of the bugs are going to be made out of chitin, which mycelium should be able to decompose. The pressure cook cycle should destroy the bacteria in their guts.
Do one or two as an experiment! We eat mushrooms grown off of poo... and personally, I'd eat an insect before I'd eat poo.
i had fuckin maggots but i got them out and my substrates good now but what is good besides coffee grounds and thassle, i just started a batch with chicken shit and straw what should i mix in? millet oatmeal? i don't have brown rice
