Macroscopic worm/maggot contams in my BRF jars!
    #1863864 - 08/29/03 10:29 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I posted this in the contam forum, but damn, half a day and 0 views (other than 3 of my own).

I looked in one of my jars that failed to germinate, and what do I see? two little... worms... or maggots... or SOMETHING.

They were about a mm long, and slightly yellowish. When I pressed hard on the jar (its a softish plastic) they reacted by MOVING! Pretty freaky. These are BRF jars and I tried as best I could to seal the tops with alluminum foil. What could these be?

I also have some other contam, its light brown, almost white, but not stark white so it can't be mycellium.

Only one of my jars germinated (out of 5) so at least I have some mycellium to compare infections to. What could these things be?

either maggots from those little black flies that love to shroom, or nematodes. either way sucks, get rid of 'em. good luck in future research!

I don't know, but you're right...those worm/maggot things sound really scary! I would get rid of those nasty jars asap. As for the other one...it *could* just be old mycelium if its just an off white color. I've had that in my jars and they fruited ok. Has it been spreading?

I deterimed that brown one to be cobweb after I took the cake out of the jar to trash it. It was the white cobweb and the color of the verm/brf that gave it its off-white color.

You're not alone!
I had a similar incident a while back. I only noticed the clearish-white little worms under the magnification of an opti-visor. I freaked when I saw something moving in the jar. They were everywhere, but only in one jar of a batch of 8, all Pc'd and knocked up from the same syringe. Bizarre!

They are very tiny, but I think still bigger than nematodes. Must be some kind of larva, but god knows what they become.

I segregated & sealed the jar with duct tape to await a painful death in the PC, but they died of suffocation in a few days. Come to think of it I still haven't emptied that jar.

peace
Ben

I tried to take a few pics while they were still wrigglin' around, but they didn't show up. They were about a quarter of the size of a grain of rice.

I just PC'd a shitload of jars and forgot about that one again. I'm kinda afraid to look at it; it's been months. God knows what's in there.
