Add liquid mix to deli cup and stir until just thickened. Allow to cool. Top with handful of loosely packed excelsior, followed by 50+ fruit flies of any variety. Lasts 1-2 months.
Available in two convenient sizes for making 5 or 10, 32oz fly cultures. Look for our Reptanicals Fruit Fly Kits to keep your culture going indefinitely!
How does it prevent mold? We use powdered potato instead of flaked, which helps to hold in additional moisture. Oddly enough, most cases of mold inside fruit fly cultures is due to low humidity. In our liquid mixture we use Apple Cider Vinegar, a natural mold inhibitor, in addition to boiling the water to avoid introducing any outside pathogens.
Why does it work? Simple answer - you are what you eat. Our Fly Feast is completely natural and bursting with vitamins and minerals - plus plant based color boosters, like beta-carotene. This means flies raised on Fruit Fly Feast will be healthy and happy, and so will your reptiles that dine on those happy flies! All while helping them to exhibit their brightest, most vibrant colors.
How long does a bag last? Each bag makes 5x, 32oz cultures. Each culture will last 1-2 months depending on how often you feed. So each bag will last 5-9 months depending on your usage.
