i usually spray the area with a mix of peroxide/water and it seems to kill the growth

Vel,
Your friend did the right thing. Scoop it out, cover with verm, and lower the humidity. That is the best way to go.

Spray the area heavily with H2O2, that will kill any spores that the green mold released (hopefully).
Then patch the area with clean verm, good job.

With luck, none of those green mold spores have taken root in your casing. Some people have patched the areas with salt, sacraficing some mycellium but also killing any reminants of that contam.

Good luck Vel!

I usualy us a Husquvarna Chainsaw and my trusty aceteline torch....then fill the area with concrete...but I tend to go a little overboard sometimes....

If you notice the contamination creeping back in you might want look into why it's occuring, casing too wet, high RH, maybe need to sterilize the material...it helps to prevent the problem in later experiments. Gotta also look at what lead up to the contamination
