Spreading contams...
    #1474709 - 04/20/03 12:20 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

My friend noticed some grey on his casings, he wasnt sure if it was a contam or not so he put it in its own chamber to see how things progress. How easy is it for one casing with a contam to get to other casings that are next to it?

Yeah many contams will bust their load of spores just like mushrooms given the scenario.

If it's grey, it's prob cobweb. Put some hydrogen peroxide in your mister and go to town on the casing full strength. If it's cobweb, it will disappear right before your eyes. It's caused from not having enough air exchange. Leave the lid cracked on your chamber, or fan more often.

Spores are easily dispersed by wind currents.

I'd suggest moving slowly when removing contaminated casings to reduce air flow.

Maybe even better would be to cover the contaminated casing with tinfoil or saran wrap (of course, move slowly), and then take it out.

Depending on what contam you have .....yes they can easily spread to other trays , so I tottally agree move slowly and methodically when trying to remove this troubled tray .
Good Luck

If my foaf notices a contam on a tray & it is beyond trying to save. He has a WIDE roll of CLING WRAP & pulls off a peice big enough to totaly cover the tray, sprays a fine mist of lysol above the tray (not directly into it) & applies cling wrap with as little movment as is possible......... to isolate the contams, then removes tray so those little frigging contam spores don't shoot all over like microscopic contam cannon balls.

I had done mine in small tuperware tubs....keep the lids handy ...just in case, plave it on as slowly as possible and hold it tight while removing it....never seal it while it's near the others.....if you catch it early....you can save it and prevent the others from getting it


6T....is your site ever going to be finished....I keep sending people to ya...and they keep asking about it...I try and explain that your like an artist...your never happy with it and it's ever changing.... :wink:
