It really does not matter if you make your own or use prepared media. You can just sprinkle on top the yeast and that should be fine. I would add two crumbled up pieces of paper towell after the yeast and press into the media. This will give a place for larve and flies to keep dry and develop; should help increase the production.
:i got a few media question.
:1)Is it better to make your own media or buy it?
:2)Which is better for the frogs?
:3)a 4 liter bag of ED's Super Instant Enhanced Fruit Fly Media is $29, how much would it (roughly/est) cost to make 4 liters of home made media with mold inhibitor?
:4) on ED's site is says "Add 1/3 cup of media and ½ cup of hot water, swirl to mix, let cool. Add 1/16 teaspoon of bakers yeast and flies." are you adding all of that directly into the deli cup or a pot then pouring it into the deli cup?
:thanks in advance!
