Most springtails feed on fungi growing on rotting plant matter.
In culture they can be fed on a variety of foods such as flaked fish food, boiled rice or mushrooms but these can be messy or be difficult to gauge the correct feeding regime.
ProRep Springtail food solves all of these problems. Manufactured from denatured and stabilised yeast this food provides all of the nutrients to successfully keep and breed springtails in an intensive culture.
It is easy to feed, completely waste free and has a long shelf life.
Every 2 or 3 days simply sprinkle enough food onto the culture medium to last the springtails for 12 hours. It is eaten completely, with no waste, so it is not necessary to remove uneaten or rotting food keeping the culture clean and uncontaminated. This extends the life of the culture and helps avoid crashing due to toxic conditions.
