About Our Fruit Flies The Silkworm Shop offers flightless fruit flies that are high in protein and an excellent feeder for a huge variety of small and baby animals, including reptiles, birds, spiders, mantis and amphibians. They are very useful and healthy as feeders for aquarium fish, which are particularly attracted byrepparttar fluttering flies. Surface feeding live bearers and bettas eatrepparttar 146174 flies voraciously. Our fruit flies are Wingless Drosophila. They are about 1/8 inch long and are completely harmless. These flies are genetically bred to be flightless, so you don't need to worry about escaped flies buzzing around your head. And, these fruit flies are USDA approved.

Fruit fly cultures are self-contained and require no maintenance. Drosophilia's life cycle is between 12-15 days, and it takes approximately 14 days before a culture will start producing thousands of fruit flies for one month or more (until all feeding medium has been consumed). Your fruitfly culture will arrive at about 14 days old (the initial production stage) and will last for a month or more.

The Silkworm Shop supplies extra-large 32 oz. cultures. Don't confuse these withrepparttar 146175 over-priced tiny vials commonly found elsewhere. Our fruit fly cultures contain twice as much medium, which means you'll get twice as many flies. These quality cultures generate thousands of Fruit Flies.

It is important to allow your adult flies two days inrepparttar 146178 culture before being fed to your critter.
