outdoor grow, insecticide?
    #4223606 - 05/26/05 07:31 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I can't seem to find DE which was suggested to control insects outdoors. So my question is will a spray insecticide work without killing off myc or hinder mushroom growth? thanks

I can't speak for the insecticide, but I do know that mushrooms can and will absorb environmental pollution from their surroundings, so I wouldn't want to find out if the same is true for insecticides of any sort.

best thing to do is find some DE. insecticide will probably kill the mycelium or very well stop growth. I wouldn't use anything besides DE IMO

Same problem here. The only thing to colonize my outdoor bed is fire ants and centipedes. I was reading about ringing the bed with salt to keep slugs out. Seems like if I water some salt right into the bed, they'll hi- tail it outa there. Seems safe, but Imma research this a little before I do. Meet ya back here later...

peace

Last time I checked on my bed little red ants crawlin around on top of it, didnt see any tunnels built through it yet though, can I put one of those little ant traps people have indoors thats like a little hexagon or whatever that lures them in and kills them, can i place a couple of those a few feet away from my patch and handle the ants?

I'm back. Salt in sub= bad. DE? I found a product to reseach called D-Soil?
As for the traps, I would worry about toxins leeching into the sub.
I'll be back again...

I only have a problem with ants. And  think i found a solution last time. I dug a hole lined it with black plastic, put holes for drainage and then boxed in my hole with 4x6 peice of wood. It kept teh ants out and made the patch look nice :wink:

There are some natural organic things that work well with some bugs, but not sure about ants. For my vegies I put a habanero pepper and garlic in the blender with water and then strain into a sprayer, mix in some insecticidal soap and it keeps bugs off plants real well. You might end up with some spicey shrooms doing this!
