FRUIT FLY CULTURE MEDIA
This 6 ounce jar makes about 4 to 5 large (32 ounce) fly cultures. This brand is renowned across the terrarium pet hobbies as being the best medium for culturing fruit flies. It optimizes fruit flies as nutritious feeders for your pet amphibians, reptiles and I use it as the mix for all the flies I raise for my predatory bugs. I never see mold or mites.
