Very healthy shipment Review by Dawn

Very happy with this order. The fruit flies lived about 6 weeks (only because I ran out). Very quick shipment. (Posted on 5/16/2016)
Always alive Review by Jk
Quality
These flies are always alive. They get stirred up by the shipper some times.. I have bought a few frogs from josh and they are healthy and robust. They have thrived in my viv. I got two froglets and they were male/female and quite robust. I could not be happier with my purchases from josh. (Posted on 3/4/2016)
Always alive Review by K hendon
Quality
They always arrived alive some times the shipper delivers them all stirred up but there are always a lot of lie flies that will refresh my old cultures. I have also bought a few frogs from josh and they are always very healthy froglets that have survived to adulthood. I have gotten an actual male/ female pair that I bought from josh. I just love josh´s frogs. My frogs are big beautiful and robust. If you give them the environment they need they will live a long long time. (Posted on 3/4/2016)
Very pleased!! Review by Austin S
Quality
Ordered a culture of fruit flies about a month ago. They arrived quickly and all alive, even though the temperatures were pretty cold. I would highly recommend purchasing these to anyone. Even within a month they have begun to reproduce and new fruit flies are available to be given to my dart frogs. Very pleased!! (Posted on 1/16/2016)

Great! Review by Amy

Temps got a little cool so I was concerned about the cultures getting here alive. I chose overnight shipping and they were all very well packaged and showed up quite active and alive. Very happy with these! (Posted on 3/18/2015)
Usually great Review by Scott
Quality
I have only received one bad culture out of the 10+ I've ordered. They are usually incredibly productive when received, and the bad culture received was because of unpredictable weather which caused lots of mold. (Posted on 5/8/2013)
