That was way more than a month or two ago. Closer to 6.

AZDR only released some feeder cultures, and when they sold out, that was it for the time being. I don't know the current status of the project.

Yes, they do stay wingless in future generations, its a recessive trait just like we see in our FFs.

I never heard of the less smelly media being released, which may be another reason that breeder kits aren't being sold.

Anyone heard of a current source for wingless house flies or blue-bottle flies?

Do you guys think the super fly that allen just released would work with the flightless house flies or just fruit flies. Also there's a guy that has blue bottle flies susan i just cant remember his user name of the top of my head. i'll check and get back to you.

They won't lay eggs in it.

is there really a new "wingless" variety or is this the same old "curly wing" musca domestica making their way to the US? the curly wing variety will pass on the deformation but as i understand its quite unstable and many people have a hard time keeping the trait long term.

The original post was 5 years ago.
I don't think any flightless variety is here in the states.
I'd like to try them for my terribs though.

Thanks, but I am looking for wingless/flightless blue bottles. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Anyone have any experience shipping internationally?
Apparently these are still available in the U.K.
Since they aren't a plant pest APHIS should not apply.
