Just got some cultures of wingless fruit flies from www.livefoodsdirect.co.uk so far looking mite free but will be keeping a close eye on them as it looks like it was made up last week so needs a bit of time to tell if the cultures i got are ok. They cost me (Buy 6 for £1.60 each) (Excl. Vat).
For the lids on my new cultures i cut to lid size thin cotton from old clothing t-shirts as i think this is the best as it helps to keep out the mites, also the very small flying pest flies from dropping there eggs through the lid cover as other types of lid covers have holes that are to large like ladies tights and curtain material and letting in un-wanted pests.
