Hello friends,

I have larvae of Calliphora erythrocephala, Lucilia caesar and pupae of Musca domestica.
I want just too see they born, to study them and to shot photos, then I'll free everythings.

But this is the first time and I need your help:

1) Where to put the larvae? Is it ok a plastic container with sawdust?
2) What I give to eat to the larvae? Is it ok some meat/flesh?
3) About the pupae, can I put them out of home for slow down the born?

Thank you for any useful answer!

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
