Quick question guys checking theese guys this morning and I noticed a few egg cases, Yay! However, the fresh fruit has attracted about a dozen or so fruit flies!!! They're making no attempt at leaving and have been feasting on the ripe mango an papaya! Oddly, they're not bothering my dubia, maybe they're scared of them who knows. Any ideas of how I can deter them? They've got teeny tiny fat mango bellies and orange eyes Razz

P.S. could I actually use the fruit flies as ant food? Or would you not?

Fruit Flies work really well for small species with not a lot of workers.

I started this journal around this time last year with 10 adults and 11 nymphs....they now number in the thousands  Shocked and will be getting "cage" upgrade number 3 during the next fortnight. I've ordered some flat egg cartons because there's so many now, and the males are getting deformed wings which is a sign of overcrowding.

Wow that colony looks awesome! I wish my Attagenus unicolor would grow like that. But then they'd eat a ton....

Yes Dermy, there are hundreds and hundreds now Shocked Shocked Shocked



I put in some of the new egg cartons to make it easier when I move them tomorrow, and omg, it's like a sea of red runners!



The females are massive, very inquisitive and like a bunch of ravenous piranhas Shocked Shocked Shocked okay maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but anything that comes into their vicinity they like to "taste" it to see if it's edible Shocked Shocked Shocked
