I have purchased many fruit fly cultures over the years and Josh's is by far the best one I have ever used. It is literally producing thousands of fat juicy flies. I could not be happier. I have rated this product as good which is an understatement if there was an amazing rating I would have chosen that one! Paul Kraus Island Exotic Pets

great buy

I ordered 4 cultures on Monday and they arrived Wednesday afternoon. The cultures arrived with a few adult flies visible, some pupae (brown rice looking things on sides), and a lot of larva crawling through the excelsior. Great bang for your buck!
