Bugs & Microfauna: Fruit Flies
Fruit Fly Cultures
Some of the highest quality fruit fly cultures online!
Fruit Flies are an excellent food source for dart frogs and many other small amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates. Our super-high quality 32oz fruit fly cultures are one of the best selling items we create at NEHERP, and we've spent years developing methods to ensure our cultures remain top-quality in the industry. Each Fruit Fly Culture is created using our NEHERP Fruit Fly Media, to ensure each will produce quickly, create huge numbers, and last a long while. Our fruit fly culture storage room is temperature/humidity controlled, and is sealed to ensure cultures remain super clean. This also helps us to ensure they will predictably & reliably produce on time, every time. Between the unique creation & storage methods, reliable packing/shipping methods, and an awesome perishable shipping policy, we're confident you'll love our fruit fly cultures. (Not as much as your pets will, though!)
D. melanogaster is our smallest fly which produces quickly and in large numbers. Turkish Glider flies reproduce just as fast & in as many numbers as D. melanogaster, but are slightly larger & have the ability to hop & glide in an enclosure. D. hydei flies are larger, more bold, and produce slower & in smaller numbers. Golden hydei is our largest fly, and produces about the same (if night slightly faster) than typical D. hydei. Cultures for each species are created using our best-selling & well proven NEHERP Fly Media to ensure excellent results. If you'd like to try your hand at breeding your own, we offer everything you need to make your own high quality fruit fly cultures on our Insect Breeding Supplies page! We suggest newer hobbyists start with the more forgiving D. melanogaster or Turkish Glider species, since they reproduce faster than their larger Hydei relatives.
