Not sure how you got bugs, but I read that it could be one of the biggest problems for commercial shroom labs, because its hard to get rid of .......  :frown:
I still have the book, later I can look up what the author did with bugs for you.
Peace

I'd imagine that the acid in your stomach would destroy those eggs before they ever get the chance of hatching.

So what came first in your mushroom casing-- the fly egg, or the fly itself ? :smile:  Could be  those little annoying fruit flyes.  Those vermin don't just show up in your mushroom casing realm.  You either introduced it before sealing the cooler or there is bad seal.  Either way those flyes must be having good time in there.

Hey, I have this problem as well, not badly though. I had some poo that was ready to be innoculated, but it wasn't enough for a whole casing, so i just let it sit. I got home after a trip one day, and there were flies everywhere in it. So I threw the whole thing out, and ever since then, there have been those flies in my house, and they fly into my terrarium, which is weird, cause they were never there to begin with. I don't know if they are burrowing into my poo casing or what, but I ahve seen two so far and shooed them out (squashed them to death), so I'm not sure if it's over or just begining...

Bugs R no good, if they R doing what u say; they might B fungus nats(flies?). Where is Anno w/ that link? Oh well.....
I had a buggy setup once, and ever attempt after that was a failure. I dont wanna blame the bugs, but IT WAS THE DAMN BUGS!
If u got em, u should try me and Feind's fly tek:
Move everything out of the "buggy" area.
Bleach bath/Clean your tools/equip.
Clean the whole lab area. (I sujest a 1 to 4 parts Bleach solution)
Vaccum, wash the walls, etc. It doesnt always pay off to go nuts, but it REALLY DOESNT pay off to not go nuts. Xpecialy w/ bugs that can carry/move bactira around yer gorwing shit.

Dont worry as much about "where they came from". Worry more about "how to get them out for good as fast as u can"

The compost that i use for my casings always has those little bugs that turn into flies. The eggs only seem to hatch once the compost becomes moist. You never said what you were using for casing material and whether or not you sterilised it.

I always sterilise the compost before use to make sure i kill the fuckers. I would also presume that these fucking things also lay their eggs in animal poo.

pasteurize/sterilize everything you use, you'll not have bugs.

Ok, I found the book, its "Growing gourmet & medicinal mushrooms" by Paul Stamets (page80) (Best book on the mushrooms that I seen)
It say to :Move everything out, wash everything with 10 % bleach solution
use two buckets of solution, first primary reservoir, the second for rinsing...
Lock tight for a day, repeat 3 times.
Hope thats helps. Good luck.
Peace
BC
