I have been using Repashy superfly since August I only make one culture every 2-3 weeks. For the last 2-3 cultures it has started to put off a bad odor after about 2 weeks. Normally it will start to do this past 30 days. The bag is stored in my frog room with it sealed. Does it start to go bad after four months.

I use 2 TBS of media to 1/3 cup of boiling water. Ill also drop in 2-3 coffee filters and use a pinch of yeast. My cultures never smell. Sometimes there is a bit of green mold but it never smells.

Are your cultures in a really humid spot?
To make that batch, is it for hydei?
Im having a problem where my cultures over produce which kills the cultures.
How many flies do you add for a culture?
Might help to increase the amount of media or reduce the number of flies you start the culture with. Too many mags can produce high levels of ammonia and drive the mags out of the media before they are ready to pupate.
The amount of flies i feed is way less than the flies it produces. The remaining flies die b4 it is time to feed my frogs again. When it time to feed again, i have alot of dead flies making it nearly impossible to pull out the new flies. I put around 50 flies in each container.I use the 3 tlbs to 2/3rd water ratio.
