The control methods of mushroom mosquitoes


Mushroom mosquitoes love mushroom spawns and are fond of eating into tiny mushroom bodies, which results in atrophy and death of mushroom buds. Young mosquitoes always eat from the base of mushroom stipe, bite mushroom bodies in stipes and lead to broken stipes or lodging phenomenon when making troubles on Agrocybe cylindracea, Enoki mushroom and Grifola frondosa. Young mosquitoes bite and eat on Auricularia polytricha, Black fungus and White fungus, which leads to black and sticky fungus base and sundry fungus contamination.


Control methods:

1. Pesticide control and suit the remedy to the case: During the fruiting period, pay close attention to the condition of material, when finding little mosquitoes, you could spray pesticides timely, eliminate the insect source in accordance with the fruiting condition. Before spraying pesticide, pick mushroom bodies which are already matured and stop spraying water one day before spraying pesticides. When encountering emergence period, pesticides should be sprayed for many times. It should be mentioned that people could choose pesticides which are with strong force, the dosage is in a range of 500-1000 times of solution and the whole field should be evenly and thoroughly sprayed.


2. Take turns in regular order and cut off food source: during the high-incidence season of mushroom mosquitoes which are respectively from October to December and from March and June, you could choose to cultivate Shiitake, Monkey head mushroom and Pleurotus abalonus which are unfavorable for mosquitoes. Utilizing this method to cultivate for 2 seasons facilitates effectively diminish or evanish mosquito sources.


3. Lay emphasis on the pre-processing of compost and reduce the propagating quantity of mosquitoes during spawn running period: For some varieties such as Oyster mushroom and Shiitake which are cultivated by raw materials and easy to be affected by mosquitoes, you could conduct pesticide treatment to compost and earthing up.


4. Reasonably choose cultivation season and field: It is best to choose season and field which don’t fit for the growth and living of mosquitoes. In frequently-occurred region of mosquitoes, you could stagger the fruiting period and the activity stage of mosquitoes. At the same time, clean, dry and sunny cultivation places are preferred.


The spawn running technology of Agrocybe cylindracea


1. Temperature: 20-22 degrees.

2. Relative air humidity: 60%-70%.

3. The temperature of material: 22-25 degrees.

4. The concentration of Carbon dioxide: 2000-4000ppm.


During the spawn running period of Agrocybe cylindracea, a kind of special Apricot aroma sends out, which attracts mosquitoes and pests, therefore, we have to pay attention to its control.


During the spawn running period, be sure to notice turning piles, adjusting stack temperature, and strictly prevent high temperature. In addition, when the spawn running is in half status, untie the rope while refusing to fold up bag mouth, in that case, you could pick out all the contaminated sticks. When the spawn running is almost done, completely fold up bag mouth while peeling off fungus block from sticks. When you find any sticks that haven’t realized thorough spawn running, then focus on them together and fold up bag mouth when they finished thorough spawn running.


 What’s more, the after-mature period that takes 2 weeks is needed after spawns become fully-grown. (Source: Beijing Agriculture Technology Extension Web)
