Each vial contains 40-50 adult flies with medium; they should be stored at room temperature and kept out of direct sunlight. Flightless Fruit Fly cultures have a lifespan of about one month. Larvae will continually pupate from eggs laid by the adults in the culture. The flies have everything they need inside the container they are shipped in, just feed to your animal as needed.

We advise that the customer should never remove all of the flies, a few should be left in the vial for breeders.

 
Regular fruit flies are about 1/16"
Giant fruit flies are about 1/8"

Live Delivery Guarantee Winter
 
Fluker Farms guarantees live delivery when temperatures are as low as 16 degrees at the destination and/or regional sort facilities. While most insect growers simply refuse to ship at temperatures below this threshold, Fluker Farms recognizes how much you rely on live insect for your pet’s nourishment and feel you should have a choice in the matter. Therefore, we provide the following options when the weather drops to 0-15 degrees (we will not ship to any areas below 0 degrees).

1) Ship Without Guarantee (SWG)-You can choose to have your insects shipped when the night time temperatures are between 0-15 degrees by selecting the SWG option, however, we cannot guarantee live delivery and NO REFUND will be given for insects that do not arrive alive.

2) Hold For Weather (HFW)-If you choose the HFW option, your order may be held up to 7 days while we wait on improved shipping conditions. If after 7 days the weather doesn’t improve enough for your order to be shipped, it will be cancelled and any charges refunded.

For your convenience we offer a variety of shipping methods. Please choose the method that is best suited for the conditions in your area. Keep in mind that although Fluker Farms will replace any crickets that do not arrive alive (subject to the extreme weather policy outlined above), Fluker Farms DOES NOT guarantee any shipping charges. All shipping charges are final and non refundable. Please inspect your packages upon delivery and contact us immediately with any problems. All live insect claims must be made within 2 business days of delivery. To request a claim, please fill out our credit request form. All claims will be processed within 2 business days.

Go to Shipping Advisory to see if there are any advisories for your area. States listed in red currently have night-time temperatures of 15 degrees (F) or below: If you have any questions or concerns related to your state or our shipping policy please feel free to contact us or call (800) 735-8537.

I want to say that when I emailed informing of the dead flies received in the first order they sent at no charge a replacement culture. This time the flies arrived in great shape.
