Sounds like your casing isn't pasteurized properly.

Really- because I love green mold. I grind it up into penicillin powder and sell it on the streets. Flu season, bitches.

I microwave my casing in covered microwavable containers at three 3 minute intervals. I have 1/4 inch holes in the lids covered with micropore tape to allow for any gas/pressure release. Probably not ideal for most but it has always worked for me.

The more accepted way is to pasteurize in jars or oven bags in a pot of water between 60C/140F - 70C/160F for one hour.

Pure verm?

Are you using it straight from the bag?

Why not try a 50/50 peat/verm casing?

I wouldn't spray different chemicals in the air at the same time. Some chemicals become highly toxic when combined.

If you're going to use both, at least wait 30 minutes or so between applications.

Make sure you smell your jars before you toss em in there. If they smell like dirt, they most likely are already infected. If so, check your inoculation and sterilization techniques.

If you are getting contams before the first flush, its almost guaranteed that your spawn is contaminated.

Are you giving your tubs/trays a nice rubdown with IPA before putting stuff in there? Are you keeping your growing stuff on the floor?
