Very cool, they make a good food source for slings anything that the slings can eat is a good food source and you can breed it on your own works out great.
, there is the odd few who have tried it but then you don't here from them again.

Best of luck, keep the photo's and information coming.

So far it is working, started with 2 batches, the 2 have now been split into another 8 so i have 10 batches but turn around is about 2 weeks got about 200 fruit flies out of 40 but not all the pupa have hatched so i will see how many batches i get from the 2. Spitting it into new containers with 10+ fruit flies in each but i think the more expensive feed will work better we will have to wait and see.

Ok guys so i'm 300% successful i have gotten 21 cultures out of the first 2 and the ones i started first are full of maggots as well as the first 2 cultures still producing but i prefer the more expensive feed mix.
