Distribute the instant breeding mix to 5 cups and stir in 5 tablespoons (~ 70 ml) of water in each cup. Then wait a few minutes for the liquid to be absorbed. If the porridge is too thin, the flies can drown (if in doubt, add some oatmeal).
Spread wood wool over it (see picture of finished cup)
Add half a teaspoonful of fruit flies (D. hydei or D. melanogaster), seal the cups and leave to stand at room temperature.
After 10 – 14 days the first flies hatch. Don’t let the substrate dry out!
The delivery does not contain fruit flies or cups. Please order these separately!
