Inspired by the moisture of the pot soil, the adult chicks lay their eggs (up to about 200) in organic matter near the soil surface. After about three days, the eggs hatch into larvae that burrow into the soil and feed on worms and decaying plant material. After two weeks, the adult chicks emerge from the soil to repeat this process. Adults live about a week. Fungal chicks are completely harmless to humans because they cannot bite and do not spread diseases. They can be a problem for houseplants, however, when their population explodes and their larvae begin to eat the thin roots of the plant. Fungal chicks can spread bile, a gr
