wtf! guess what i found on my cake
    #3030808 - 08/21/04 01:28 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I dont know how the hell it got on there, but I was looking at what i thought were primordia, when I spotted a very small maggot. my cake has not been out where a fly could get to it. should I remove the cake from the chamber since there are 2 other cakes with it? has this happened to anyone before?

That would be wise. Isolation is your best course of action...

fungus fly larva is wut the maggot probably is.. the flys themselves are tiny, so itmay of easily gotten into your kit without your knowledge, CHANCES ARE THAT IF LARVA IS ON YOUR CAKE THE FLYS have laid thousand of tiny eggs inside your cake.. it happened to me b-4 and i just left them in the chamber to see wut would happen and they ate the flushed fungus, it sucked, i broke open the cake and their were thousands, if theirs one, theirs usually a million but good luck. i hope for the best


--------------------
In the dawn my toes are cold They spread their little trinkets on the ground In the hall By the closet door They creep into my bed without sound On a cube In a plastic egg A hundred fabric figures in a pile See them march Toward me And dance across the floor trippily Little faces keep no track of time Little faces speaking out in rhyme Little faces smiling in my mind Tiny doors For walking through sticky fingers clutch forbidden things the phone For talking through Sinking ships On a foamy sea That tumbles from the motion of filthy Little hands In the dark When eyes are wide listen to secrets that I tell In a ball On tiny beds Or beneath them where the shadow people dwell moon Beams split the night Leave bars of yellow pasted on their faces As they drift into a dream

If that is a fungus gnat larva, get rid of that cake before they all mature into the adult phase. Those things are a bitch to get rid of.

Hmm... This is interesting. I just started a new terranium, and have placed perlite in it and I noticed some flies inside the terranium.

Does anyone know a method of exterminating these flies before I put my cakes in?

Will they also invade a casing?

Lastly, is there a chemical that would kill the insects, yet leave the environment safe for fungus?

Fly swatter!

"Will they also invade a casing?"
Depends on the type of flies.

"Lastly, is there a chemical that would kill the insects, yet leave the environment safe for fungus?"
Go for a Pyrethrum based product, something like this (look for a spray, a fogger might be too much)

Note: never used this vendor before but I liked the description of the product.

Ok thanks, I will check out that product link.

Side note:

Where the hell do these insects come from? One day they are not there and the next there around 50.
