Sure, they’re called “flies”, but the great thing is – they can’t fly! You can keep tubes of these great little flies without any escapees buzzing around! A wide variety of reptiles, fish and amphibians require smaller prey – you can give them just what they need with our flightless fruit flies. We offer two sizes: D. Melanogaster which are about the size of a pinhead cricket, approximately 1/16”, and D. Hydei which are a little larger, at 1/8” in size. Both varieties are shipped in a four vial pack with approximately 50 to 100 flies per vial, and each vial will continue to produce flies for up to six weeks! Your pets get all the natural taste, nutrition, and fun of fruit flies, without the wings.
