About This Product

Josh's Frogs Fruit Fly Media 60 lbs (makes 400 fruit fly cultures) is the best in the industry. Since 2004, we've produced over 80 TONS of fruit fly media! Each bag of Fruit Fly Media (you'll receive 20 x 3 lb bags) contains enough media to make 20 cultures. 20 bags of media makes 600 1/3 cup cultures or 400 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.

Best fruit fly culture media!

I've gotten fruit flies and culturing supplies from other places and I can tell you they don't measure up. I always find the "cheaper" flies and media either don't produce as well, stink to high heaven, get that gross smelly liquid that spills when you get out flies or a combination of the three. When you make Josh's frogs media it kind of reminds me of oatmeal in both texture and smell, it makes a ton of flies and even as it ages the smell doesn't stink up my room. I make mine a little thicker and don't have to worry about that nightmare sludge that pours out on occasion. Great product and their customer service is out of this world!
