Could this be a reason for having gnats ??
    #7060726 - 06/18/07 11:50 AM (10 years, 10 months ago)

Hi,

I have had some flying visitors ...specially on my bulk sustrates rather than in normal casings ( 50 / 50 +)

I have been wondering why .... and I have realized that on my spent coffee grounds there are some very little worms running around ...

The thing is that when i mix the coffee grounds with coir or hpoo I do pasteurize it in the oven and i thought that could kill this kind of things. ...

I will give a try with coffee G. PCed for 15 min.

Do you think it could be a reason for having these Gnats or should I look for some other reason ????

Thanks

The worms would be maggots. Don't use an oven to pasteurize. You'll also need to keep the gnats off your substrate because they lay eggs, which hatch into the maggots you're seeing.

Ok Rogger , but the maggots are in a tray where I keep my spent coffee grounds during the days...

Why I shouldn´t use the oven for pasteurization ?? I use an oven bag and I just bought my meat termomether to do it right.

Can the Maggots resist then the Pasteurization ??

Thanks again .

oven pasteurization is horrible since ovens dont heat very evenly when it comes to temps (i.e staying below 170) and most ovens start at 200f any who................maggots will die when pasteurized
