Hi, I am pretty new to keeping PDF (I have two D. tinctorius, and I was wondering what is the best way to go about starting and caring for fruit fly cultures. I have two cultures of C. Hydei and two cultures of D. melanogaster.
It seems like every time that I have a culture it only lasts about a week and then a few more flies will pop up within a week or so and then they don't come back at all.
What I was wondering, what could I be doing wrong? They still have a lot of food left, and the second set of flies has just shown up. Can I start more culture from these? If not how do I go about doing that?

Those are actually my favorite culturing how-to videos :) Kudos to all you over there at Josh's for putting them together and the other videos as well.
