Each culture will last about 1-2 months and will continue to generate new flies so long as at least 5-10 adults remain in the container. Each culture contains 30-40 adult flies, plus larvae and pupae that will continue to produce new flies. Each 32oz culture can produce 500-1000 flies during the life of the culture.
