Why do we only breed D. melanogaster? We only feed these flies, even to our largest frogs, and we have over 2000 individuals. Here are a few reasons:
1. Higher, faster yields. Hydei can take twice as long to reproduce.
2. Melanogaster outcompete mite cycle, hydei reproduce too slowly to do this, so you can never beat mites.
3. Eaten by all dart frogs, regardless of size.
4. Apterous melanogaster (wingless, not flightless), cannot covert to flying, like hydei and flightless can. No messy kitchens and annoying fliers!

These cultures are approximately 6-10 days old, and will come with at least (approximately) 50-100 wingless fruit flies packed in FrogDaddy Media. It will begin producing in 3-5 days on average, and will continue to produce for another 7 to 14+ days after that, however, please throw out the culture after 15 days from reception to prevent potential mites. Always keep developing and producing cultures away from freshly made cultures. If you are planning on making your own fruit fly cultures, use these cultures as soon as they "boom", then do not seed from them again. These "good practice" tips will help you succeed with fruit flies and keep mites at minimum. Our fruit fly cultures are always very low in mites, but we recommend doing your due diligence to keep your cycle clean.
