About Our Microfauna & Feeders


When it comes to microfauna & feeder cultures, our small company's goal has always been to offer the best bugs available anywhere. Ever since we began offering live microfauna back in 2009, we've done our best to earn & maintain our uncommonly positive reputation in this department. Our team has worked to develop unique production & quality assurance methods beyond what might be considered typical for the industry. Each member of the staff has been trained to prevent cross-contamination within our environmentally controlled microfauna room, in an effort to ensure our microfauna cultures remain clean, predictable, and reliable. The supplies we manufacture in-house (Fly Media, Microfauna Food, etc) were all engineered to meet the absolute highest standards, and we're sure you'll love the results!

Shipping Info - Hard Supplies:

Orders which don't contain any perishables:
We aim to ship hard supply orders within 1-2 business days Monday through Thursday. Transit times depend on your chosen shipping method, but basic ground transit ranges from 1-5 business days across the continental USA.

Shipping Info - Feeders & Microfauna:

Ensuring Healthy Arrival:
Every culture is carefully wrapped in clean paper, individually labeled with ID, and neatly packaged before arrival. If temperatures are considered low, we'll add non-toxic 40-72 hour heat packs to ensure safe arrival at no extra charge. All perishable shipments are scheduled to avoid weekend delays, which helps us ensure the best chances for a healthy live arrival. We're fairly confident that our live arrival rate is the highest in the industry. :-) Please check our Live Arrival Guarantee before you order, since some locations may require the selection of Express Shipping to qualify if temperatures are especially cold.
Every culture is carefully wrapped in clean paper, individually labeled with ID, and neatly packaged before arrival. If temperatures are considered high, we'll add non-toxic ice packs to ensure safe arrival at no extra charge. All perishable shipments are scheduled to avoid weekend delays, which helps us ensure the best chances for a healthy live arrival. We're fairly confident that our live arrival rate is the highest in the industry. :-) Please check our Live Arrival Guarantee before you order, since some locations may require the selection of Express Shipping to qualify if temperatures are especially hot.

When We Ship Our Feeders & Microfauna:
In most cases, we're able to ship orders containing microfauna and/or feeder insects (along with any supplies) the same or next business day. That being said, we're forced to schedule all perishable shipments to avoid the (2-3 day long) weekend delay, which greatly increases the chances of healthy live arrival. If we can't ship your order to ensure it'll arrive to you before being impacted by the weekend delay, it will most likely not ship until the following Monday. Pretty please plan accordingly, try not to wait until the last minute to order, and always let us know if you are in a rush. View our full Order Processing Page for complete info.
A Note To Clients In Distant States:
Our business is only about 25 minutes away from the shore in Connecticut, so we're about as "East Coast" as it gets. If you live in the Pacific or Mountain time zones and select standard shipping (default), packages from us will likely be in transit for 4-5 days. With that in mind, clients who live in distant states that select standard shipping are likely to have all perishable orders ship the following Monday, since Monday is the only day we can safely ship while avoiding a weekend delay. (Monday + 5 transit days = Saturday arrival) If you are in a rush, we recommend selecting Express Shipping during checkout, since we'll be able to ship to you as late as Thursday while avoiding the weekend delay. On a related note, if temperatures are over 85° or under 45°, Express Shipping is also the only method covered by our awesome live arrival guarantee! We wish there was something more we could do to speed things up while keeping things safe, but we're dealing with a geographical problem the best way we can.

Fruit Fly Breeding Kit - Hydei

Our best fruit fly culturing kit for Hydei Fruit Flies!

NEHERP Hydei Fruit Fly Breeding Kit
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
25 Culture Kit shown with optional Fly Cultures
Our highest quality, best selling fruit fly culture kits are sold with or without flies to help make things as inexpensive & easy as possible. The NEHERP Hydei Media included in this kit helps to maximize the production of Drosophila hydei & 'Golden hydei' flies. This media was developed on the backbone of our best-selling original NEHERP Fruit Fly Media, with extra protein, amino acids, and vitamins added to boost production rates. This kit includes everything you need to build 10, 25, 50, or 100 cultures using our super-high yield fly media!
Important: While the extra goodies in this media boost hydei & golden hydei flies, they negatively impact the production rate of non-hydei varieties! If you work with both melanogaster and hydei flies and only want to purchase one kit, our original mix is the better bet for a "single media" option since that blend works great with melanogaster and well with hydei, too. For the absolute best performance out of both species, using both medias (one for each species) would be the ideal choice.
