Question concerning larvae contam
    #13139026 - 09/02/10 05:25 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I have had a recent infest of gnats in my house. They have gotten to my jars despite taping up the inoculations boxes. They seem to turn the substrate a copper green color around the mycelium and you can obviously see the little white worm bastards crawling in them.

I know I got to get rid of the gnats to solve the issue,

question is some jars have the worms in them but no green contam yet. Can you stick the colonizing jars in the fridge to kill the gnat larvae and then take back out and allow the jar to contnue colonizing?

will that work? any thoughs much appreciated.

Yea seriously man. they are soooo done for. That sucks that happened bro! Hope you have better luck next time.

I would for sure throw them out, but if your desperate, could you possibly put em in the ground and, i dont know...worth a shot maybe? I guess it could depend on your climate

Fungus gnats suck. You can search posts for some options, but the only way to really knock them out is to toss/finish up all growing and then shut down for a week or 10 days. This breaks the cycle, as any eggs that hatch in that timespan, those tiny little larva have nowhere to go and die. Good luck.

Yum dead worms in your mushrooms. No man just toss them out back and hope that you get some outdoor fruits going.

Sad to hear the gnats foiled your project. Better than the Fuzz i suppose though...
