Default Can you Re-dust flies?

I feed my frogs in the morning and they never eat when I feed them. By the time they eat the flies have washes off all the vitamins I have dusted on them. Is there a way to re-dust them if I can catch them? Or I better off waiting a few days until the frogs are hungry enough to eat right when they are fed?

Second option starve them a bit for them to finally synchronize to your schedule.

Yes, this.

There may be other reasons the frogs aren't eating what you're offering them, but nine times out of ten, the frogs are simply (and possibly grossly) overfed. If you're feeding everyday, that's almost certainly the issue.

Assuming that you have otherwise healthy adult frogs, wait a week and then see how they eat.

I'm picturing you with a fruit fly sized fishing pole.
