Help! Worms in my mushrooms D:
    #2891911 - 07/15/04 02:01 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

If someone could answer this for me it'd be greatly appreciated. I bought an ounce of mushrooms approximately 24 hours ago and had used a fan to dry them. Before I went to bed I felt them and they were pretty dry, but not like crunchy dry or anything. I then placed them on a paper towel and placed them inside a shoe box which I then placed inside my closet. I woke up the next morning and checked them, they were fine. Checked them again tonight planning on eating an eighth or so to find that there were about 20 little white worm looking things crawling all around my shrooms. They just popped up out of nowhere. I killed all of the little worms and now I am worried about eating them. I'm pretty positive they are P. Cubensis. So what should I do?

describe them more and maybe someone else can tell you what type of bug they may be.

Well, I would hope your positive on the ID before you were to consume them... Dry the mushrooms cracker dry. The maggots will die. I know it seems gross, but you usually end up eating a few when collecting wild mushrooms anyway. You can make tea out of them, and strain all the solids out if you prefer, or just eat em. They are just the larvae from flies, a good source of protein... But if the shrooms are rotting, then that is a different story...

I had one hatch out of a wild clone tissue and crawl all around my petri looking for a way out. You could see the tracks of bacterial contamination right up to it.

Ditto. . .make sure they're what they should be [pics would help] and dry them completely.  You may want to cut a few lengthwise just to make sure the centers aren't rotten.  Making tea is probably a good idea, but grind it well.  Little dead maggot floaters might turn off some folks :wink:

I sure they are P. Cubensis now. I dried them out last night to cracker dry but I'm not sure if I dried them out too much, are they supposed to be to where they are almost kind of burnt? Also when making tea, is it okay to grind it up into a fine powder, or do I need them in little small pieces? Thanks again everyone.
