maybe try shaking the bag that they are in? rolley polleys ball up when disturbed so i don't think it will be hard to shake them off.

The first time I used poo it grew bean sprouts along with the mushies.

Good GOD, you have room for 300+ pounds of substrate?

Its about how many you can keep out when your storing it. You cant really pick through it. Maybe if you dumped it in small amt's in a shoe box and got em out.

I don't deal with hundreds of pounds of it, so I just store my poo in the biggest PVC pipe you can buy, about a four foot segment with two end caps. No bugs get through the pvc's tight fit, and one end is glued sealed airtight shut completely. It's really pretty cheap and works great.

300 lbs of poo isn't a huge amount, volume-wise. It would be what, about the same size as a 300 lb person, right? :rofl:

thanks for the input! unfortuneatly i go through it way to fast to have to store it.... i would like to have mass amounts here on hand for whenever i need it, but i go and pick it up and bring it home and use it.... I was expecting to be able to get home and start mixing... but i know having them in there is a bad thing and i want to at least try and get them out...  lol.... i've been sitting next to the pile picking them out 1 by 1.... this isn't working.... lol

If they are completely permeated throughout w/ these bugs I would agree that I would not want to use this as a substrate. So you want the poo but you need them out.

Maybe on a tarp you can lay a large amount you need, hopefully the cold exposure will force them to leave, if not go deeper. You could also try dumping boiling hot water on the substrate to force them out. Hopefully not damaging the integrity of the hpoo.
