Description

Need some tiny flies to feed some tiny pets?

Don’t get caught out again! Start your own Vinegar Fly colony and have live food at hand, whenever you have spider or mantis eggcases hatching. And so easy to keep going! Ideal for small species or hatchlings of spiders, mantis or assassin bugs.
These flies are also sometimes referred to a Fruit Flies.

Each starter colony comes with approx. 50 adults and some eggs/larvae, to get your colony started.

All specimens are captively-reared and parasite free!

Available Year-round!

Not included:
Ventilated, escape-proof mesh enclosure
Regular food (fruit such as banana, apple, orange, kiwi, and/or pear)

Environmental Requirements:
– Ventilated, escape-proof mesh enclosure
– 1-2 pieces of overripe fruit, such as banana, apple, orange, kiwi, and/or pear per week placed in tubs on floor of enclosure.
– Occasional cleaning.

Please note: We recommend allowing your colony to grow for a few weeks before using large numbers of flies to feed out. It is possible to wipe out your colony due to premature and unsustainable harvesting.
