Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Media. Ever. Great stuff. I've tried a number of other brands of media, some from herpetoculture stores that charge an arm and a leg for theirs, but none beat this. It's easy to use, is very resistent to mold, and the flies do great on it. I found a piece of rusty metal in one batch so I docked it a star on quality, but other than that, no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and simple to use I've used Carolina's Drosophila media for as long as I can remember. It is very easy to use and has never failed me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs better quality control I have been purchasing this product for years and have never had an issue: the flies grow well, are healthy, and my frogs remained healthy eating the flies. In this last batch, however, I discovered a sizable piece (approx. 4cm across) of rusty metal in the media. I have no idea if it has adversely affected the media or not. I'm just glad I found it before making a batch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. A quality medium for healthy cultures. Use a zip-loc bag instead of rubber banding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I've been searching for a fruit fly media that really works, at a great price and I've finally found it. This is one of the best deals for fruit fly media that i could find, along with those benefits, my students can now help with culturing of fruit flies for the frogs in our classroom. Thanks so much, Dave.
