These bugs must have sprouted legs to crawl into your cultures, or
perhaps wings and they flew in?  I've been doing cell culture for about
15 years and in that time have found two things to always be true:  #1)
Yeast and bacterial contaminations are always from poor technique.  These
things do not fly through the air!  #2) The only kind of contamination
that is airborn (and thus from a dirty incubator) is mold.
