Musca domestica, the common House Fly, are a delicious enrichment food for your reptile or amphibian friend! The flight of House Flies will keep your scaly friend entertained and stimulated as well as provide a suitable food source. House Flies are about 8-12 millimeters in their adult form making them a great size for a variety of reptiles, amphibians, fish, and birds. Josh's Frogs House Fly Pupae (250 count) contains a healthy overcount, as not all pupae will hatch into flies. The pupae are packaged in a small deli cup with wheat bran.
 
How to Feed
House Flies are fast! To make House Flies easier to move, place them in the fridge for a few minutes. This will slow them down enough that they will not fly out when the container lid is open. Shake the House Flies into your enclosure and watch your reptile chase after their tasty treat! Any House Flies left over should be removed or else they may breed and lay eggs in your enclosure. 
 
How to Store
When you receive your House Flies they will be in pupae form. The pupae should be stored in the fridge until you are ready to contain and feed off flies. Be cautious about leaving them in the fridge for too long. The longer House Fly pupae are in the fridge the lower the numbers of flies will hatch out. To hatch flies, simply place the pupae in a container at room temperature. Flies should emerge in 3-7 days. The longer the storage time, the few flies will hatch out. Try to use all pupae within a couple weeks.
