Our fruit fly cultures come in a convenient pop-open container so you have far few escapees and can concentrate your flies where you would like them.
Each culture is shipped with 20-30 adults that will be your stock culture, you will use the offspring of these larvae and be able to go through many series of generations using the same cup.
Fruit flies are perfect for mantids, anoles, salamanders, spiders, dart frogs, and even bettas!
It will take 7-10 days upon receiving your culture for the flies to begin producing babies.
Your culture should be kept between 65° and 90°. Always keep 5-10 flies minimum as a breeding culture to lay new eggs, on the other hand don't let too many flies breed as crowding will damage your culture.
