    well i am in the east side, hopefully that is not too far for you. imo wingless fruitflies is much less hassle then worms and with the right media doesn't smell much at all as i place them in my room.

    Yes, I do think it would be fun to start a culture. Where then can I get a sample from you some time next week? What time? I am happy to pay for your effort in making this possible.

    P_20160604_100703.jpgP_20160606_115254.jpgP_20160606_115300.jpg This is a recent culture about a week ago, you can see they have liquify the culture down below, there are maggots and some adults. It should explode in population end of this week or next week. so i will either feed it to fishes or start a new culture about 2 weeks later.

    Very good, Tommy, what is the recipe you use for the culturing medium?
    Where did you buy the straw material from?

    i am using instant potato mash, i mix it with white vinegar and water, i add in baker yeast for them to easily liquify the media and cinnamon powder to suppress the smell. I got the straw from Taobao, they are very cheap in bulk.

    P_20160606_203748.jpgthis is a mature culture that is good for harvest, it will remain like this for a few weeks, just don't feed all of them at once and they will replenish themselves. hundreds of fruit flies, great for frogs, insect, spider, reptiles and fishes.
