Image below shows approximate count (500 - 700) per order of 'Flies Only'.
That's a lot of food for your hungry mantis buddies!
ADD THIS ITEM TO THE MANTIS MENU AFTER A WEEK OR TWO.
We recommend ordering this item soon after the egg case hatches. Melanogasters (1/16'') are the first meals, these
larger hydei (1/8'') are twice the feast. Note: Your mantis will do best if fed a variety, such as this item along with
silkworms and other appropriate sized prey.
These flies must be used right away or fed your own food. If that doesn't apply to you,
perhaps you would be interested in these flies that come with the feeding culture. You'll find
Drosophila Hydei is the scientific name for this fly. Our flies are genetically
altered so their wing muscles are too weak to support flight, making it a well-suited feeder for your pets.
