Tiny Purple Gray Insect Things

I went out mushroom hunting for the first time this morning and found some cool mushies. I three different species and put them in wax paper inside plastic bags to take home. However, when I unwrapped them to take spore prints, they were infested with some very small grayish purple things that I am assuming were insects because they seemed to be moving and making a sort of humming sound. They were so small that it was hard to tell with the naked eye. Obviously I didn't want them spreading so I threw all my samples away :frown: Are they fungal gnats that hatched out of eggs in the mushroom in the couple of hours they were in the bags? If not, what are they and where did they come from? I don't want to go look for more mushies because I'm afraid this will happen again!
