Flightless Fruit Flies | Buy Live Cultures

Live fruit flies are a great option for feeding small lizards and many species of frogs, especially because of their reproduction cycle. Each culture of flightless fruit flies has a lifespan of about one month, and even after they die they will continually pupate from eggs laid by the adults in the culture! This will allow you to keep fruit flies for a while, as long as they are taken care of accurately. Regular fruit flies should be kept at 70 - 75 degrees and giant fruit flies should be kept at 78 - 83 degrees. If the culture is not stored at an appropriate temperature, it could possibly mold. The flies have everything they need inside of the container they are shipped in; just feed to your animal as needed! Buy flightless fruit flies from us today!

We advise that the customer should never remove all of the fruit flies from the Fruit Fly Culture, a few should be left in the vial for breeders. This will increase the lifespan of the vial and result in the need to buy fruit flies less often.

  • Each Live Flightless Fruit Fly Culture contains 40-50 medium adult flies. 
  • Cultures should be stored at room temperature and kept out of direct sunlight.
Regular fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) are about 1/16"
Giant fruit flies (Drosphila hydei) are about 1/8"

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS:

Gently tap the top of the culture to knock the fruit flies to the bottom. Remove cover and shake out the desired amount. It is recommended that you dust your flies with a vitamin supplement such as Fluker's Repta-Calcium or Fluker's Repta-Vitamin prior to feeding them to your pet.

Live Delivery Guarantee Winter
 
Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities. While most fruit fly growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees).

1) Ship Without Guarantee (SWG)-You can choose to have your fruit flies shipped when the night time temperatures are between 0-15 degrees by selecting the SWG option, however, we cannot guarantee live delivery and NO REFUND will be given for insects that do not arrive alive.

2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded.

For your convenience we offer a variety of shipping methods. Please choose the method that is best suited for the conditions in your area. Keep in mind that although Fluker Farms will replace any crickets that do not arrive alive (subject to the extreme weather policy outlined above), Fluker Farms DOES NOT guarantee any shipping charges. All shipping charges are final and non refundable. Please inspect your packages upon delivery and contact us immediately with any problems. All live insect claims must be made within 2 business days of delivery. To request a claim, please fill out our credit request form. All claims will be processed within 2 business days.

Go to Shipping Advisory to see if there are any advisories for your area. States listed in red currently have night-time temperatures of 15 degrees (F) or below: If you have any questions or concerns related to your state or our shipping policy please feel free to contact us or call (800) 735-8537.

    They arrived with lots of flies. They laid a lot of eggs and are in the larva stage now. Great product I'm very happy with them and so is my baby anole.
