bug larvae in jars
    #652090 - 05/29/02 09:08 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I noticed some small flying bugs buzzing around the unsealed drawer used for storing my jars while incubating. Upon closer inspection, some of the jars, which were rather damp inside, had small insect larvae (read: worms) squirming about. There is absolutely no contamination yet, and a lot of mycellium. I'm wondering if I should toss the jars or wait out the bugs to leave.

Don't know if this is a coincidence, but the bugs are only in the birdseed jars. The BRF jars appear to be bug-free. This could be because those were prepared using the Ryche-Hawk birdseed tek which has been notorious for overly-wet substrate because that tek doesn't detail how much h2o to use. After this batch, I'm done with that frustrating thing!!

Any suggestions?

appreciatively,

di11rod

Bugs!!! Dude how'd they last through the sterilization process. I'd be scared. But I'd wait and see what happens.
totally weird. I was gonna try birdseed next but... that's scary
Good Luck

No i don't think its a coincidence. That happened to me too. I tossed mine right away it's not worth contaminating my environment. Sounds like you have some exterminating to do. . If you want to experiment do it somewere you don't do your good work.
