I am very hopeful that this second round of BBF spikes from rainbowmealworms.net is very productive. I already have several dozen nice pupae I've separated out for the first zip bag. The rest from that bag I've left to pupate in a cup. The other three bags (all still wriggly spikes) are in cups, in the fly fridge.
I want an abundance of flies for my crew. ❤️
To be fair, I was on a learning curve. I figure I cooked and dried the first pack with too much heat.
Also, not enough humidity in here in the winter. I can fix that moving forward next winter. (let's not talk about next winter yet)
Also, I should have removed the spikes from little zips as soon as I got them last time. I did this time.
The last bags of spikes were flaky as they were 5-6 weeks old by then.
With my gained experience, I expect them to eclose by Friday give or take.
