Is it possible to cultivate any of the beneficial microoganisms that keep our fungus contam free in a natural enviroment? Are there any types of bacteria that would possibly kill off harmfull contams and live symbioticly with mushrooms?

When cultivating on sterilized substrates, you are practicing the art of EXCLUDING contaminants. Exclusion is the best rule of thumb for contaminant control.

When using COMPOST as a substrate, the beneficials are already in there. That is what composting is. It is a biological selectivity process. Various organisms, and natural processes act on the ingredients of the compost mix, to selectively eat and alter the final product that you use for mushroom cultivation. The mushrooms in turn do some selective eating of the compost themselves, breaking it down further, and adding there own metabolites too it. Eventually you wind up with Plant food.
That is why compost is pastuerized and not sterilized!!! The compost has been biologically, chemically, and mechanically prepared for the mushrooms use.

For the most part, in indoor cultivation, EXCLUSION is the best policy.

In other words don't waste your time messing around with possibly hazardous cultures. Just grow pure cultures of the fungus you want to grow.
