    Sorry, you can't sell here. You can ask for shipping costs, and you can trade, but nothing past that.

    Happy growing!

    You would have to make a new culture every 2-3 weeks and probably empty the culture out every few days so it doesnt become too populated and crash.

    What I do is pour 300-400 flies in a ziplock bag and throw it in the freezer for a few hours to kill them. Then I take them out and dry them and store them in a container until I need them and feed the dried flies. Then all you have to do is buy one new culture when you run out and repeat. If you wanted you could also do like Joesph Clemens does and grind the dried insects into a powder and sprinkle them on your plants every few weeks. I choose to just feed whole flies since they are quite small as is.
