Approximately 400 maggots are delivered in a 125 ml box, which quickly pupate at room temperature. After approx. 8 – 10 days more than 1 cm flyable flies hatch – the perfect mantis food! The flies are suitable as food for almost all subadult and adult praying mantises. To upgrade and extend the life of the flies can be fed with honey. The maggots can also directly used as feeder insects if needed. Keep them dry and do not add any food! They can be stored for several weeks in the fridge, both in maggot and in pupae form.
For pupation and hatching, it is best to store the maggots in a box with ventilation holes (e.g. a cricket box).
