My casings were doing fine, and then i went to harvest my second flush and EIEW!! There seems to be a small colony of little black bugs all throughout the terrarium. WTF?? Honestly it made me not want to eat them but if I did would this be safe? The bugs all crawled off the mushrooms when i laid them out to dry. Did something just decide to lay eggs with the weather change or did i do something wrong? This is fking gross.

When you're living life like a show, you got to take a bow to all the people you know... ~Sublime~

In reply to:

or did i do something wrong?

In a way, yes, you did something wrong. One way or another you left open a vector of contamination.

Nobody on this board can tell you without examining the bugs if it's safe to eat the shrooms or not. However, chances are that you'd be fine.

Get rid of that case. The mushies might B alright. I would "get rid" of them, despite eating them.
But if your case is procuing black flies TOSS IT.
I would say bleach dunk the case, just to try to save some mycel.
But who wants decaying fly corapses and eggs lieing in their case waiting to spread more bacteria?


Don't soak your WBS dummy! There's an =>easy<= way.

I say they're safe to eat, you gotta look at it like this, when you pick them from the field they are infested with bugs, no one's died from eating a couple of bugs, unless of course you are talking about little black bugs that fly, Woah, if so, you may want to send them to me, I'll see if they are alright, I'll send them back, although some (most) may get lost in the mail.
