EBAY Compliant in reference to "feeder insects"

Only eBay Fruit Fly Seller - USDA - APHIS Compliant in reference to 526 Permit!

First our apologies for anyone who has received old brown Fruit Fly Cultures from any of our competitors as this is not what you should expect from any Fruit Fly Cultures you purchase from any company that specializes in Fruit Flies. We only specialize in Fruit Fly Cultures and have for over 7 years now. You will find we only do one thing, produce the best Fruit Fly Cultures available anywhere and we do it better than anyone (according to our customers)! We have sold more Fruit Fly Cultures on eBay compared to all of our eBay competitors combined and have been selling Fruit Fly Cultures on eBay longer than any of our competitors! Plus our D. Melanogaster are almost 1/8th of an inch and our D. Hydeis are a little larger then 1/8th of an inch, compared to most of our competitors whom actually promote puny flies as it isn't always the fly but what you feed the fly that matters! You wouldn't eat a bony cow or dried potato flakes with water, would you? If you lived on what many of our competitors use in their media you'd be pretty tiny too and we know this as we have worked to maximize the quality of our flies through constant improvements to the food they eat over the past 7 years and currently we are the only Fruit Fly provider using 100% naturally occurring probiotics (10 different - healthy naturally occurring enzymes) (produced in house) and active yeast (not just dormant) during the production of our cultures! It shows with plump, healthy Fruit Flies that produce large quantities of exceptionally healthy offspring to feed to your pet(s).  "You are what you eat" comes into play even with your pets, that is why we know feeding your pets the healthiest Fruit Flies packed with healthy nutrition only makes good common sense.

All orders from all of our auctions are always combined when possible to save you money on shipping as we do not mark shipping up from actual USPS rates!

Shipments are made Monday through Wednesday of each week from North Florida. Same day shipping on most orders received Monday through Wednesday (and Thursdays to 2 day locations) till 1 PM EST whenever possible. You will be notified when your order is shipped through USPS.com (or PayPal) and the expected time of arrival according to USPS. All orders received after 1 PM on Wednesday will be shipped out the following Monday unless previous arrangements have been made. *Please keep in mind Holidays (and Hurricanes) can and WILL delay your shipment if the Post Office is closed. Please note we are shipping LIVE / PERISHABLE items and as such we almost never ship when the package will have to sit at a Post Office over a Holiday or on a Sunday as DEAD FLIES are useless to all especially the little mouths they are intended for. All of our long term customers will tell you to Order FFQ (Fresh, Frequently and in Quantity) as we will not be held responsible for pets dying from lack of food due to their caregivers forgetting to order timely as it is ALWAYS better to have too much food on hand compared to the lack there of (bugs are not always easy to find local or wild during the winter months in most locations compared to a bag of dog food). If you have any problems please email me immediately upon delivery for details. If you are unable to be home when they are delivered please ensure there is shade or cover available as I can not be responsible if the box is left in the sun to cook or in the cold to freeze. In extreme temperatures we reserve the right to ship your order "Hold for Pickup" to help ensure the live arrival of your order which also allows you to pickup your order early from your local post office. "Hold for Pickup" is available on Priority Mail at most postal locations nationwide, if you wish to have your order shipped "Hold for Pickup" please send us a note in your order or contact us minutes after placing your order.

Shipping costs are for Priority Mail anywhere in the continental USA. We currently ship to all 48 states (excluding Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico). We do everything possible to recycle for packing materials as this is great for our environment and helps keep your costs to only USPS rates with NO extra fees.

In compliance with eBay all order require next-day delivery and seeing since Priority Mail takes 2 days to approximately 80% of our customers. 3 day Priority Mail is not currently a solution at this time although we are working closely with eBay to amend this situation. If you are concerned please opt for Express Mail but check your location first as many rural areas are 2 day even with express mail which would be a waste of money. Thank You.


We accept PayPal payments. Keep in mind if you choose to pay be e-check it will delay shipping until the funds have cleared. Thank You.

Customer Service:

You can email me with any questions feel free to contact us here at FlyCafe.net.
If you have a preference of fresh vs. pre-incubated please email me or note it in your PayPal payment. Fresh are prepared the day the posting is placed and will begin hatching in 1 to 2.5 weeks or more (based on the type of flies you order) while pre-incubated are prepared the day of the initial auction or earlier and will begin hatching when you receive them or shortly after. Pre-incubated are always in limited supply although guaranteed if you pre-order at least 2 weeks in advance with delayed shipping (you specify when you want them shipped also known as planning ahead, not something most of us think about.). If you order 2 or more cultures we will ship half pre-incubated and half fresh unless you specify otherwise (based on availability).


We give 100% Feedback to all customers whom leave feedback. If you ever have a problem or concern even if you consider it a dumb question please ask us, as knowledge is power and we love to hear from our customers. We will always try to assist in any way we can to get you on the right track and help you with your concerns.

Thank you for your business.
