little black flies
    #2180536 - 12/15/03 08:44 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

there were little black flies that made tiny holes in cakes and seemed to live inside of the cake... does anyone know what this is caused by? Possibly eggs in the verm? used was brf / verm cakes, the fruiting chamber had moist verm at the bottom... but was not cooked, just straight oout the bag. Is there an insecticide that could be used to prevent that which would not hurt the shrooms?

i hate to say this, but your cakes are probably fubar.

i bury all the cakes at the first sign of fly infestation. you don't want a mass infestation of those things getting loose in your house. it happened to me once and it will never happen again.


those flies seem to come out of nowhere and mess up everything. they will get into potted plants' soil. they also hang out in garbage disposals and other moist places. you should clean up anything wet or nasty that may be in your house and maybe pour a strong cleaner mix down your sink's drain.

there isn't a whole lot you can do about them usually. try spraying them with a nicotine/water mixture.

fly infestation are a pain. had many cakes infested once and never understood why. took many weeks to destroy them all. do not mess with that!

i was so desperate that i was about to open every windows and doors of my appartment for 24 hours to make sure the whole appartment is freezing at -15 degrees celsius and hope they all die.

damn that pisses me off, yea, the cakes got tossed a bit ago...
The only thing i can see them coming from is the dry verm... everything else gets steralized.. or maybe this house is unclean and infested... i hear ya though, they are everywhere... i see em buzzing around the house every now and then... ill have to make sure to bomb the house with some bug bomb shit before the next cakes get fruited.
