Fungus Gnats
    #3426299 - 11/30/04 03:01 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Would a crop that is lightly infested with fungus gnats and their larva be unsafe to eat? I mean the ones that haven't developed any visible signs of contamination from the infestation.
I've seen the larva on a lot of the ones I've picked outdoors also. Is there any way to keep them away from outdoor beds?
:confused:

I sure wouldn't eat them. Doesnt sound too appetizing. Were the mushrooms contaminated during the grow ? If it was just some bugs on the shrooms just wash them off

Insects are rich in proteins.
Most people find them disgusting though ... i do on most occasions. But it depends on cultural and social values.
Anyway, if the mushrooms don't show any sign of contamination besides the gnats larvae, i'd say it's your call ...

Thanx for the replies. I figured they weren't harmful. The people who will be eating them won't know about the gnats or larva. I just didn't want to give anyone anything that might hurt them in anyway :heart: :thumbup:
