Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Science Fair I used the flies for a science fair project and at first was disappointed because when they arrived there weren't as many as I needed, but there were many larvae. Within a few days I had plenty of fruit flies. I would recommend this company to anyone with fruit fly needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fruit Fly Galore We needed Fruit Flies for my son's science project. Well of course he was procrastinating and we needed fruit flies in a hurry. We did not have time to let them naturally occur in our home and it was getting colder outside. We ordered only three vials and let me tell you. We had plenty. Then after about a week, My goodness we had a bunch more. Anyway, we were basically ready to start our experiment as soon as we got the shipment. We did not have to wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use I am a student and I used these for my science fair project for school. The fruit flies were all alive when they came in the mail and the vial allows them to breathe without letting them escape. I would recommend this product to students and professonials alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always reliable I have been ordering D. melanogaster cultures from Carolina for 20 years. The cultures always arrive in a timely manner and are exactly what I need. When asked to pack the flies for very cold weather, they always do (important when ordering in the winter and needing the flies to arrive alive).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from abundant larva I ordered this for a senior project and it is just what my student needs. There are plenty of larva with a short turn around period for life cycle. Great for in class experiments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done 5 stars for well shipped, healthy flies ready to go. 4 stars for ease of use as they are fruit flies and once you have them you need to care for them. Order vials and media if you plan on breeding them past the few weeks a vial will last. highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carolina Drosphila are the BEST!!! I have been ordering fruit flies from Carolina for 18 years and they always are excellent. The cultures are consistently delivered on-time and in perfect condition. The few times I have had issues have been due to shipping problems and Carolina Customer Service has always been great to work with.
