Your best bet is to first look for a local connection. Post an ad saying, "Wisconsin Fruit flies needed". If you're lucky, a local will see it and bail you out.

How old is your culture? Are you relying on only one culture? You should always have multiple cultures going. Our goldens produce quite nicely.

There's alot of froggers in WI. someone should be close enough to you to not have to ship. Try also try posting in the "WI froggers" Thread

I also have a few extra cultures if you need one. Petco sells fruit fly cultures also. They are small and like $10 but if you get 2 it will give you flies to start a new culture and some to feed to your frogs.

This is a lesson to always have multiple food sources. Cultures crash, its a fact. Keep a few cultures of springs, isos, and flies.
