Drosophila Hydei are another commonly encountered fruit fly in the hobby. Hydei measure about 1/8”, and are quite a bit larger and ‘meatier’ than D. melanogaster – perfectly suited for dart frogs that prefer larger prey items, or other pets with similar needs.  This strain will not revert back to fliers at a higher temperature, unlike ‘flightless’ melanogaster.

When your package arrives, the best thing to do is find a shelf in your house you can put your cultures on where they won't be bothered for a few days.   Fresh cultures take several days before they start producing hundreds of flies.  You don't want to feed off the flies that initially come in the culture!  If you do so, the culture may fail to produce more flies...be patient and wait for a sudden increase in fly production. 

Your Fruit Fly Cultures, containing Drosophila Hydei, will be 2-6 days old when you receive them.  Drosophila Hydei are about 1/8" and are an ideal food for poison dart frogs, fish, praying mantis, young frogs and toads, and other reptiles, amphibians, or captive animals that require small foods.  Each culture is made with OUR PROVEN FRUIT FLY MEDIA containing all the vitamins, minerals, and color enhancers that your pets need to thrive. For optimal production Fruit Fly Cultures should be kept around 70-76F. 

Compared to that of D. melanogaster, the life cycle of D. Hydei is much longer. At average temperatures, it will take 21 days or more until the first new Hydei being emerging in a culture. Hydei fruit fly cultures show a particular ‘boom and bust’ cycle – the culture will appear empty, only to suddenly be filled with flies overnight. Most cultures will have 2-3 booms, with 5-7 days between each one.
