but...how many of these attempts to recreate jars findings have used the same brand of fly strip,and conditions ie in a fc(humid) that jar had. may be some trade-secret/family recipe addition to a "bog- standard" fly strip recipe ,that enabled the growth. or the fly itself...
hmm, this does not seem to panning out as claimed.
hip "...regurgitate stomach contents as flies do and a few stray bits get left behind to grow out."
...a fly lands on fly strip, get stuck,no? he regurgitates his/your myc all over his "lill feet" lol, and becomes myc food as it grows out.more nutricious than tape i'd say! sweet justice lol.so....
catch one of the lill blighters thats been munching your myc,a small squeezy bottle, perhaps with a tube in the cap,squeeze the bottle to create a little vacuum when released,suck the bleeder up and blow out onto the fly paper.
appropriately bizzare idea came to me as i type.lol
if the above vacuum bottle/fly catcher is filled with sterile air,like you would to make a shakable spore syringe,suck up the pest and blow him out into a peroxidated honey water jar.
i'm talking a, fruit/mushroom- fly/gnat, born and bred in your sterlile-ish fc,not a blue-bottle thats just flown in from the garden after snacking on your dogs dooda.
the peroxide(hopefully)kills any bacteria leaving your myc to digest, a nice, warming honeyed-fly broth. yum. fruit fly lc tek. anyone. lol
invitro:"...packing tape was all but destroyed when trying to get the tape apart." maybe you could just wipe tape with h20 or etc, cut a nice segment showing growth from the tape and place in an lc or prepared grain jar?
