Culture Will Produce Thousands of Flies

D. Hydei Fruit Flies are available with the feeding culture or without. The feeding culture will allow you to propagate the flies, producing a continuous supply of new flies for more than a month.

If you order the flies with the culture, the Fruit Fly shipment will arrive with the flies separated from the culture(s).

One container will include the fruit flies (several hundred for each culture ordered) and a small amount of food. The other 32oz container(s)-one for each culture ordered- will contain the feeding medium and perching mesh. Upon arrival, pour the flies into the 32oz feeding medium container(s) where they will live and reproduce throughout the life of the culture. This shipping method ensures that the flies will arrive alive and won't drown in the feeding medium during cases of rough handling by the USPS.
