    Wingless fruit flies are widely available on the web. I'm also planning to get a colony from one of the sites (if I can't get some in a trade 1st). Dr. Frankensnyder used these to help grow his many dews.

    If someone has researched purchase costs (cost plus shipping) for wingless fruit flies, feel free to make a recommendation...
    All the best,

    Some PetCo stores carry them. None of the stores local to me have them. I found one about 15 miles away that carries fruitflies.

    I'm not sure what the USPS and Dept. of Agriculture requirements are for shipping these.

    I've not seen how Ivan Snyder manages to behead the flies with his thumbnail. It is certainly beyond my feeble abilities. Micro-surgery forceps/tweezers are a must.

    I purchased them at Petco for $5.75. I'm not sure if they're always there. I just happened upon them. Worth checking before paying shipping though. I had purchased them online once before though.

    A college buddy of mine breeds his own flightless flies for his poison dart frogs
    He's got thousands (of flies) so he gives me some every once in a while pro bono; and I give him some capensis to catch the ones that mutate and start flying again.

    that's way cheaper than i expected. i'll have to do another search in a few weeks.
    i may also try using a dilute orchid fertilizer mix after someone suggested that idea.
    anyone have experience with this?
