No.

I have had flys and gnats get in my FC before.
There are insects that can be problems to mushrooms though.
But the odds of it being that is problly pretty slim.
Insects can carry other unwanted spores so it's best to keep them out as much as possible.

One time I saw little gnats in my FC. A week later I saw a bunch of them. I looked closely at my casings and saw little tiny worms (it was the gnats larva). A week latter I saw tons and tons of them in my FC. Did some research and found out they were fungus gnats. Those fuckers feed on the mycelium. Found out they thrive in very moist environments. I was misting my casings a lot. Anyways, got rid of that whole FC. Here is a link with lots of info on them.

Fungus gnats can be a pain in the ass.
I have never had any , but I've had chats with people who have had them.
I wouldn't worry to much about it , by the time you see the larvae , you'll have to throw the cake/tray away.
