I ordered and recieved 4 containers of fruitflies and a food/deli cup kit. This was 1st time I ordered from this place. The ad said no mites(which I never had before and a very nutricious food mix. Sold! Good ad I guess. They came on a day that it got to 92-the mail doesnt come until late if the day 3:30 pm usually. As soon as it came I opened it and all maggots, flies were not moving. Some excelsior on 2 of the 4 cups was between the cup and top and maybe 200 now dead maggots were loose in the box. I never had that happen before! I felt that something might have lived. Well waiting days for them to hatch I saw little brown mites 1000s of them on the cups white tops. I never had that before. I moved them out to a shed. 1 cup had maybe 50 flies, so I set up 3 new ones and set them up. Another cup had a bunch but they were all flying!!!???. I never had that before. The other 2 cups never had anything hatch out. I started itching and wanted to throw them out, but I want to see what happens, since I spent a small fortune on flies, kit,and shipping. The next day my fiance told me she was itching. I told her of the mites. I had bought from Mr Tresser in Miami years ago, but wanted to give this place a try, as the ad sold me. Any recommmendations on mite control-I dont want to kill off all my flies. And a new place to order from since I wont buy from this place again. Steve in Sarasota. PS someone hacked into my account/changed password but not screen name, and I had changed email addresses without changing it here, so I had to put a 1 behind my prior screen name stevemc is now stevemc1.
