fruit flies?
    #932911 - 10/04/02 09:20 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

are fruit flie eggs just present in the original substrate and not killed by PC'ing, or are they attracted by something else, like the rotting grain? is it something else? i just wanted to know so that i have a better idea the next time around. thanks a lot.

actually, i meant what was the original source of the gnats? where are they coming from. there aren't any in the chamber, that i know of. i've looked pretty fucking long and hard. i think they're only present in the house.

Fruit flies & gnats can detect moist warm dung from 1000 yards away. They sneek into dung before & after it has been pasturized & lay eggs. The eggs turn ito tiny maggots that eat the myc & fruits. Then hatch into more f*cking flying pests.

If you find one -- it means a lot more are around -- in something. The raccoon ~~ once ~~ threw out a whole batch of cased substate containers, bug bombed & started over.

shitty.  what can i look for in the jars to see if they're in there.  i have an extremely sterile and airtight environment, and practiced good lab technique[at my colleges chem lab :wink:  ].  they could possibly just smell the grain and be attracted but not find their way to the source, yes?

I don't quite understand your question. Fermenting grain would draw gnats or fruit fly's.

But, if you PC'ed the jars of grain & they had a filter disk or material over them. No gnats or FF's could be alive inside after PC'ing & none could get through the filter barrier after.
