RAISING FRUIT FLIES
To raise your own flightless or wingless fruit flies requires little in the way of equipment. Take a jar with a lid, and boil it to kill bacteria. Make tiny holes in the lid so the culture will be able to breathe. Take a cup of mashed potatoes, a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of yeast. Mix these ingredients, and then add water to the top of the dry mix. Stir the mixture, and you have your cultures feed and bedding. Now buy a vial of the fly you want to breed, and you will never need to buy fly again.
The mixture you made will be enough for a few cultures. Try to use glass jars for the culture containers. They are cleaner, and work better than plastic. That's it! Place your flies in the culture, and in a couple weeks you will have tons of maggots and flies. Start each culture with 10-20 flies to ensure a large deposit of eggs in the substrate. Good luck.
