Fruit fly cultures are a great, long lasting food source for small frogs and baby lizards. Our Fly Cultures at LLLReptile last up to two months!! We have the best cultures available ANYWHERE!
Drosophila melanogaster stay smaller, but reproduce quicker. Drosophila hydei get a bit larger, but produce a bit slower.
Store at ROOM TEMPERATURE up to 80 degrees. Higher temperatures than this can cause little or no production of flies. Cooler temps slow their reproduction time. Allow the cultures 2-4 days to produce before feeding off (hydei do take longer)
YOU MUST ORDER BY WEDNESDAY MORNING, 9AM pacific time TO GET THEM THIS WEEK. Otherwise, they will ship out the NEXT WEDNESDAY
These cultures are the BEST ANYWHERE. We have tested them ALL, and these produce the most and last the longest!
Ideal for frogs, baby chameleons, baby geckos, small insects and more!
These last for weeks, and even up to a few months! You can purchase fruit fly media and keep them going even longer
We do NOT guarantee live arrival in arrival temperatures below 35 or above 90 degrees. If the box is left at your door and they overheat or freeze, we also can not guarantee them. Your best bet is to have them shipped to a business address, or somewhere you know someone will be available to receive the package
