Maybe you can grow amanita muscaria (fly agaric) with your oyster mushrooms  ^_^
You know that, this amanitas  are deadly for flies  :mellow:

Mushtella, are you getting fungus gnats (look similar to fruit flies) or big ones like house flies, horse flies etc.? If they are fungus gnats, I've read in the past that hedge balls help naturally control those problems. The problem is that the substrate is their food source and fungicides would be the chemical solution, if you weren't growing fungus... Good Luck

daddy long legs...  collect them from the house or where ever...  a quick spray of H2O2 and send em in the fruiting chambers...  no webs
