Flightless Fruit Flies (Drosophila melanogaster) You will receive 1 32 oz cup and lid with a producing fruit fly culture already set up inside. As always, I advise the buyer to subculture your flies a few days after arrival in order to give yourself a back up culture in the event one crashes. Instructions For Use: To harvest your flies to feed your critters, simply tap the bottom of the cup on a table so that all the flies fall to the bottom. Turn the culture up and tap out desired number of flies. I tap them out into a cup and them put them in to my aquariums. This help me better control the number of flies that I feed and it makes it much easier to coat them with calcium powder. Return excess amount of flies to the culture. Just remember to ALWAYS tap the bottom of the cup or top of the lid BEFORE opening your culture!! Subculturing Instructions: In a small bowl, Smash one banana until it is a paste consistency Add in enough instant potatoes to thicken the paste but keep it moist. Add add about a cap full of apple cider vinegar to help prevent mold. Add the mixture to your culturing cup and tap cup on a table to even out mixture Sprinkle a pinch or two of yeast and a thin layer of cinnamon over the culture medium Add a hand full of excelsior to the cup. This gives the flies something to crawl on and adds more surface area to the entire culture. Poke small holes in the lid of your container. You can then either stuff them with filter floss to prevent flies from escaping or you can glue coffee filter paper over the holes. Tap about 30-50 flies into the new culturing cup with the new medium and quickly add the lid. Your new culture should start producing in about 10 days!! Disclaimer: There are multiple ways to culture your fruit flies. This is what works best for me. Please do research to decide the best option for you. SHIPPING POLICY: **FREE SHIPPING** I ship Monday through Wednesday only. This helps prevent loss of life due to weekend delays. I strongly urge all customers to keep a close eye on tracking using USPS tracking service. It is important that you are able to receive your package as soon as it is delivered as some cultures are very sensitive to extreme hot and cold temperatures. I ship to the US only. DOA POLICY: Due to the nature of my products, I do not accept returns. However if in the rare event that your culture arrives dead you must send me 2 photos within 4 hours of delivery time. I will do my best to resolve any issues that you may have. I cannot be responsible for cultures after the allotted delivery time as I cannot control how well you care for them or how long they set exposed to temperatures in mailboxes.
