Damn man. Ants are going in the jar? That can't be good. I doubt they're whiping their feet before entering. You sound like you have some serious insect issues in your home. You may need to address that before you can grow anything succesfully. They have all day long everyday to get to whereever you put the food. If they're there and they can fit in the hole they will do it. I poked tiny holes and used a 23-25g needle to inoculate. I figure the smaller the better.

Tied down! That's a good boy

I scream! No one hears me
It hurt! I'm not a liar

Mommy why?! Your own child -Korn

ok ive said this like ten times now, Diatomatious Earth ( hort. grade not pool grade) is safe ( dont rube it in your eye or snort it ) and it will kill bugs that walk through it so you could sprinkle it around where the ants are walking, this should f' them up. and if you have any house plants thats where your gnats are coming from, increase air flow around plants and this will disturb the bug while they are babies, and you could water your plants with a few drops of dawn dish soap the grease fighting agent will scorch the larvae, this will kill the things instantly, Diatom. earth, yellow sticky traps, not over watering your houseplants.
do you have fruit flies or fungus gnats( smaller and quicker than fruit flies) if fruit flies then put your fruit in the fridge. and even if you dont see the flies in the air there could be many of them in the soil in the larva stage. yikes.

Ants are one of the illest creatures. Now they have been discoverred to mine ricecakes for psylocybe fungus.

That's awesome.

You should chuck the jar they were getting into, it is most certainly going to contam.as for the rest of the jars, get some hot pepper saucy stuff (anything hot) and surround any enterance to the jars or the place of the jars themselves. Most ants don't cross pepper lines.

glue traps. for rats and bugs. just get the glue pads for rats and tape 'em to the side of the terraium. Ants are pretty bad though, i had flies. and ant traps too, just in the room in near your terraium.
good luck
