Am I buggered? (gnat)
    #3428988 - 11/30/04 07:11 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

So i opened up my little pod today to see a single gnat fly out. There's a hole in the top that i'm an idiot and didn't cover with tyvek because i'm stupid stupid stupid. Anyways..I don't notice any other gnats but if i see one does that mean there's 1293129039012309 hiding?

It's my first jar and it's pinning now....

Advice?

I just opened it up again and gave it a good fanning/look over. I didn't notice any gnats or larvae anywhere on my cake. It's sealed now so i hope it was a fluke.

Unfortunately, only time will tell. If it was a single fly, and happened to be a pregnant female, you might be in for trouble soon.

Well thanks, i'd kind of come to the conclusion that i'd need patience just like in every other step.

Hang on, I just caught that you're working with PF cakes? In that case, odds are good that things will be OK. Flies proliferate best in bulk substrate, casing layers. It's not a guarantee, but I'd be pretty optimistic.

shouldn't cover your pod holes with tyvek, should put polyfill in them. I'm assuming your talking about a PMP here. Tyvek doesn't let nearly enough air out that polyfill would.
