Josh's Frogs Melanogaster Fruit Fly Media is the best in the industry. Last year, we produced over 24 TONS of fruit fly media! Each bag of Josh's Frogs Melanogaster Fruit Fly Media contains 10+ cups of fruit fly media. A bag of Josh's Frogs Melanogaster Fruit Fly Media makes 30 1/3 cup cultures or 20 1/2 cup cultures. 

Retains Moisture

The #1 killer of fruit fly cultures is low humidity.  Therefore, Josh's Frogs Fruit Fly Media uses powdered potatoes rather than potato flakes.  This not only allows for a more thorough mix of ingredients, but it also allows the media to hold more water.  This keeps the media from drying out and prematurely killing the culture.

Great Smell

Josh's Frogs Fruit Fly Media contains two natural anti-bacterial/anti-fungal ingredients.  This eliminates the nasty smell of a bacteria/fungi infected culture. Many customers compare the smell of our cultures to freshly baked bread.

High Yields

Bacteria, Fungus, and Molds compete for nutrients with the fruit flies.  Josh's Frogs Fruit Fly Media fights these invaders so your fruit fly cultures produce not only more fruit flies, but healthier fruit flies. We have the best producing fruit fly media on the market, and have been constantly perfecting it since 2004. We approach fruit fly culturing from a scientific standpoint, and produce over 1200 32oz fruit fly cultures a week. 

Packed with Vitamins and Color Enhancers

We believe that healthy fruit flies lead to healthy herps.  Therefore, Josh's Frogs Fruit Fly media is full of vitamins and color enhancers from natural sources. 

Directions:

1. Mix ¾cup of boiling RO Water/bottled water with ½ cup of media.
2. Add a handful of excelsior to the cup.
3. Cover the cup and wait for it to cool.
4. Add 50-100 flies.
Cultures should be kept below 85 degrees and will start producing flies in 12-14 days. If the cultures seem to be drying out (or molding), spray with RO Water and use more water when making cultures. Josh’s Frogs recommends keeping the cultures in a plastic drawer system to prevent them from drying out. This media contains a mold inhibitor. Shake well before using.

I've been using this mix for years, and it produces larger flies than other mixes I've used in the past. I think Josh's Frogs mix is a much better quality for my frog's health. (Posted on 3/3/2016)

I have been using Josh's FF media for years now and will continue. It has worked for me consistently producing a large number of FF. My cultures last approximately 6 weeks with no smell.
