im sure it could..but will it..i dont know =/

i guess it depends on how long hes been there, if hes been subjected to any sterilizing heats, whether hes already decomposing or not, whether any contams are present on him, in him, or otherwise. i guess just keep an eye on it, and let me know if it does get contaminated, kinda interested if it will or not =)


in the meantime, put up a sign that says "not a grasshopper graveyard"
or something to that effect

Gross!

Man, how the hell did a grasshopper get in your casing layer? Did it crawl in there or was it in the mix and you didnt notice it when you applied it? If it crawled in there and died then it may have brought something in with it. And if it crawled in there, you need to seal up your chamber better, lol.

If you sterilized the casing layer good, then I wouldnt worry. Remove the carcass and patch the hole.

Let us know how it goes, I know I will be searching for dead bugs in my coir from now on because of this post. Nasty!

I had something similar happen once. I noticed this putrid smell coming from a casing and found this dead racoon in there !!!  :shocked:

Don't know how he got in there but I've since bought a rifle to keep the pesky little varmints at bay  :grin:
