Drosophila breeding concentrate is a prefabricated compound made from different vitamins, yeast and one colorant. With this breeding concentrate, a high-quality and effective basis for breeding fruit flies as a source of nutrition for reptiles is produced within seconds, simply by mixing it with warm water. Healthy, high-quality, large feed animals develop thanks for the vitamins contained. These fruit flies are significantly better perceived by the reptiles when feeding due to the colorant contained in Drosophila breeding concentrate.

Use: 1 part Drosophila breeding concentrate is mixed with 1.5 – 2 parts warm water by stirring.


The vinegar or fruit fly (drosophila) grow, depending on species or breed, up to 3.5 cm long and approx. 1 mm thick. The male has a black end segment, the female a brown end segment. Approximately the same-sized maggots hatch from the approx. 0.55 mm long and 0.2 mm wide white eggs, which grow to approx. 5 mm long after three moults. Breeding with Drosophila breeding concentrate is very easy and does not require much effort. A new formula is prepared without cooking.

Use: 1 part Drosophila breeding concentrate is mixed or stirred briefly with 1.5 – 2 parts warm water (22-25 °C) – and then the breeding paste is ready. It couldn’t get easier than this! No complex cooking, no odours when preparing the paste.

Adding a few drops of vinegar (fruit vinegar) accelerates breeding. The thickness of the paste can be controlled by adding water. The prepared paste will liquefy again after a few days. This is intended to provide optimal living conditions for the maggots.

The room temperature for breeding should be approx. 22-25 °C. Egg deposition by the fruit flies ceases at higher temperatures.
