What do you breed them in. Are there other things besides flour that is good to raise them in or feed them?

Hey Greaser,
Doyles dart den has great information on them. As far as I know they only culture in flour. My only problem with them is that they don't produce fast enough. They are an excellent supplemental food, especiallly for non-thumbnail frogs

We have always used 2 parts whole weat flour, 2 parts white flour, 1 part brewers yeast. I keep my cultures in shoeboxes with the lids on. I get larvae out every two weeks in the warmer months and every 3 weeks in the cooler months.

Thanks
Amanda

One person I know added a good portion of potato flakes to his mix. He clais that this makes them reproduce much faster...extra fat/protein maybe? However, whole grain oats contain more protein than potato flakes(at least the brand I'm using).
