I purchased one of those carry out cricket containers. When I took the cardboard off to open it, I noticed little flies in there. Based on previous posts, I know these are probably fungus gnats or phorid flies. I have read that phorid flies can carry nematodes so I have NOT opened the plastic lid to put the crickets in my cricket keeper. Should I freeze the container and throw them out or am I being paranoid?
