When I recently bought new frogs the tanks that they came home in brought along some flying fruit flies. They have managed to get all over my house now, which is just plain annoying. I was just curious if the fliers could infest my flightless cultures? My boyfriend said that he thinks that they can reach eachother through the mesh on the lids of the culture cups. Anyone ever had any experiences with such a thing happening?

not to highjack this thread, but which containers do you all use from superior enterprise? these:

im really not wanting to spend that much on cups, but i can. do they not have them in smaller numbers? i got 50 cups from eds fly meat and they have lasted me nearly a year, 240 would be over kill.

I just got my shipment of these cups and all I can say is that it was soooooooo nice to just make new cultures and not have to clean the old cups. Not to mention I didn't have to mess with the cloth for each cup. I also like superiors cups much more than Ed's. Once the Ed's cups get full of larva on the sides it seems harder to get the flys to come out of the cup. You can tap and tap but they seem to stick to the sides of the cup more than they do with superior's. Maybe I am just a weirdo, don't know if anyone else has noticed this or not.

Also, my cultures seem to be fine. I have noticed the fliers laying eggs on the outside of the cloth on some, but I haven't seem fliers in the cups. The one thing that I do like about the cloth is that when it is covered in larva I just take that piece of cloth and put it in my tanks for the frogs to feast on and replace the cup with a new piece. I will miss the ease of doing that.
