Flightless Fruit Flies (Drosophila melanogaster) Culture

(14 customer reviews)


In stock


Flightless fruit flies are ideal for small invertebrates that require tiny feeder insects.  We feed them to most of our baby hatchlings of spiders, mantids, scorpions and centipedes.

You will receive one starter culture in a ventilated clear cup, along with 3mm wood wool and about 50-100 fruit flies.

The fruit fly medium at the bottom of the cup will be the food for the larvae that will emerge after about two weeks. The lifespan of one culture is roughly about 1 month, producing up to 500 flies. The flies are about 2.5mm big.  You will need to keep the culture at a temp between 20-27 degrees.

    The quality and quantity of fruit flies is awesome. My jumpers alternate between them and the crickets from here. I feed them to the slings too. Thank you, Bug Frenzy, for top quality jumper food.
