Gnats in fruiting chamber.
    #4062613 - 04/16/05 04:19 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

So I was just hovering over my pmp admiring my work when I swear that I see the reflection of a tiny bug's wing. I throw on a latex glove and I snatch the piece of verm off of my casing where I saw it. I don't see anything on it at first so I go back to looking at my cakes/casings. Sure enough a minute later, a gnat comes limping off of the piece of verm I pulled out. This shit has me paranoid now. Are gnats a serious problem for mushrooms? I read they can bring contams in but will they actually start nesting in my pmp or anything like that?

yes, fungus gnats are a pretty big problem, start with the yellow sticky traps
if they increase in numbers over a week other measures should be taken

Yea, gnats are a fucking massive problem. They multiply quicker than rats. Don't put anything in there new, use another terrarium for your new stuff. All of those in there are fucked. They'll pop out some fruits but not ideal. Sorry bro. Keep your shit sealed up tight.

I'm hoping that the shroom gods were smiling down upon me, and caused me to go look at my chamber as that little fucker got in there. The casing he was crawling on has only been in there for 12 hours and it was sealed in my incubator before that. I'm going to the hardware store right now and getting some traps and maybe some repellent spray. I'm also going to tape coffee filters or something over the holes in my pmp lid. This calls for extreme measures...I need to go equip myself now.

I just got back from the store with some supplies.


I sprayed the repellent all around the outside of the pmp and the floor in the corner.  I'm not sure if I want to use the trap yet because it lists the areas where it shouldn't be used like around sick people etc.  My grow room is my bedroom so I would be exposed to the shit all of the time.  If those bastards multiply in my chamber, I'm throwing the trap in there to condemn them all to hell.  You can bet on that.  :hellfire:  :machinegun:  :hellfire:

yellow sticky traps... they're pheremone scented and have no pesticides, just some glue
